Well, not exactly MY eggs but the ones we dyed for Easter a few weeks back. We were a zealous bunch and went back to the store for more eggs twice. I think the final total was 54 plus or minus a couple that were smashed, mutilated and then eaten by one enthusiastic 21 month old. We discovered a new dying technique motivated by distraction and neglect. Leaving an egg in a single color for 10 minutes or more results in spectacularly rich color and if you then dry it off and move it into a different colored bath and neglect it there for an additional 10, the end result are the most luscious jewel toned eggs you could ever imagine. Thoroughly satisfying to the eye and high in protein too.
