How to do it?
Dissolve the dye powder in 0,75 l of boiling water and boil up to 6 eggs for 8 minutes. The dissolution of the powder in cold water can avoid the formation of foam.
If foam forms, it can easily be distributed by stirring the water.
The dye will be evenly distributed if the eggs are turned around several times during the boiling time.
To achieve deeper colour tones let the eggs boil for 10 minutes. Dip the eggs in cold water and let them dry.
Best colouring results are achieved on white eggs.
A particularly appealing lustre can be achieved by polishing the dyed eggs with a bit of olive oil.
