When we think of Easter, eggs are definitely a main symbol most of us can relate to. Every April in most homes, families gather around a table to decorate and dye eggs. These pastel colored eggs are used for decoration around the house, in baskets or they are used for children’s Easter Egg Hunts. You simply can’t celebrate Easter without homemade Easter eggs.

How To Hard Boil The Perfect Easter Egg -

When it comes to hard-boiling an egg there is a special way to get it to be perfect. Sometimes an egg yolk can come out a little runny in the middle or completely opposite and be a dark grayish color. Obviously you are either keeping the egg in the boiling water for too little or way too long. Follow these simple steps to achieve the perfect hard-boiled egg.

1. Place the pot on top of the stove. Make sure the pot is big enough to hold the desired amount of eggs you want to hard-boil plus boiling water.

2. place the number of eggs carefully in the pot. Add enough water (temperature of water doesn’t matter) to completely cover the eggs. Place the pan on the stove and turn the burner on to high heat. Leave the pan alone for 20 minutes.

3. After the time has passed, place pan under cold running water to cool off the eggs. Let the eggs sit in the cold water for awhile. I sometimes add ice cubes to the pot to help cool of the eggs.

Blow or Hollow Out Easter Eggs -

Sometimes families blow out the eggs and then decorate instead of using hard-boiled eggs. It might be more difficult for a child to try to decorate an egg that is hollowed out because it is more fragile.
