Hard boil your eggs and let cool. You can cook your eggs using the traditional method in boiling water. Or use the oven or pressure cook. I prefer using my Instant Pot – so easy and they come out perfectly every time (though we don’t eat the decorated eggs if they’ve been hidden and out of the fridge overnight).
How to cook hard-boiled eggs in a pressure cooker:
Step 1: – Carefully add eggs to the pressure cooker on the rack
Step 2: Add 1 cup of water
Step 3: Add lid and seal. Set cooking to manual high pressure for 5 minutes. Once done, let the pressure cooker naturally release for 5 minutes, and then manually release the pressure.
Step 4: Place eggs in an ice bath for 5 minutes. Remove and dry. Store in the fridge until ready to dye.
How to tie-dye Easter eggs
Step 1: Wrap cooked eggs with paper towels and secure with rubber bands
Step 2: Add dots of color to the paper towels
Step 3: Spray the paper towels with vinegar until saturated.
Step 4: Squeeze paper towels so the color transfers to eggs
Step 5: Let dry
Step 6: Remove paper towels
And that it! so easy. No special kit to buy, just uses basic pantry supplies.
