HOW TO MAKE Marbled Eggs

Ingredients

5 white eggs, large and organic (if you can)

onion skins (I used onion skin from 3 lbs of onions)

1/2 cup vinegar

2 TBSP white vinegar (or the one you have and use)

1 1/2 TBSP green food color

1 tsp salt

cheesecloth – cut 5 square, one piece per each egg (I used size 6 by 6 inches. You can use the size that will fit your eggs)

INSTRUCTIONS

Be sure to wash uncooked eggs using the water. Set aside.

Cut the onion skin with the scissors into small pieces. Please be sure to cut to the smallest size you can.

Place the onion skin pieces into the plate.

Now take your first raw, white egg and place into vinegar mixture.

Be sure the whole egg is covered with vinegar.

Then place the egg into the onion skin.

IMPORTANT: Roll the egg into the onion skin pieces. Do the best you can.

Then place the egg with onion skin into the cheesecloth.

Wrap the fabric as tight as possible. Be sure the whole egg is covered.

IMPORTANT: Tie off the top of the cheesecloth very tightly with the thread so that onion skin is hugging the egg. (no social distance here)

Repeat with the rest of the eggs.

Then fill your pot with cold water, add the vinegar and salt.

Then placed your wrapped eggs into the water.

Be sure that water is covering the eggs. (or water should be above eggs about 1 inch)

Add greed food color to the pot. Use the spoon just to mix color into water evenly or the best you can.

COOKING THE EGGS

Bring the water to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium.

Simmer for about 10 to 15 minutes. (depends how hard you want your eggs to be)

Then turn off the heat, remove the pot from heat.
