Description

These brightly colored Greek Easter eggs are the ultimate symbol of Greek Easter! Preparing these vibrant and colourful Easter eggs on Holy Thursday, always makes me realise that it’s Easter time. Discover how to make them to perfection with this traditional easter egg recipe!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 12 eggs
  • 1 package red egg dye powder
  • 6 cups warm water
  • 1/3 of a cup vinegar
  • olive oil, for shinning


Instructions

  1. To prepare these colourful Greek Easter eggs, start by boiling the eggs. Wash thoroughly the eggs and place them (in one single layer) gently in an empty pot. Add enough cold water to cover the eggs by 3-4 cm.
  2. Season the water with a good pinch of salt and bring to the boil. If you like your eggs hard-boiled, but juicy at the same time, boil the eggs for 6 minutes.
  3. Remove the pot from the stove and place the eggs under cold running water for about 1 minute to stop the cooking process. Crack one egg to check if you are happy with the result.
  4. After the eggs cool down, start preparing the dye for your Greek Easter eggs. Place the warm water and the dye powder in a large glass bowl and stir, until dissolved. Add the vinegar and stir to combine. Place carefully the eggs (comfortably) in the bowl and set aside for 2-3 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon on a rack over some kitchen paper and let them dry for about 40 minutes.
  5. To give a little shine on your dyed Greek Easter eggs, wipe them with a paper towel with a little olive oil.
