Raw eggs safety measures

  • The first line of defense for eggs is their shells, so work with eggs carefully to prevent cracking. Eggs with cracked shells cannot be decorated or eaten.
  • Because raw eggs may have Salmonella or other bacteria, wash your hands with warm water and soap before handling eggs and at every step of egg preparation, like cooking, cooling, dyeing, and even hiding them for games.

How to Make Perfect Hard-Boiled Eggs for Decorating?

When you start decorating the eggs, work with chilled, hard-cooked eggs.

Supplies needed 

  • Eggs
  • A pot half filled with water
  • A Spoon

Boil the Eggs

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Reduce heat to a gentle boil. Carefully place eggs, one at a time, into the boiling water using a quality spoon and cover the pan. Then bring the water to a rolling boil over high heat for 10 minutes.

Drain in cold water. 

Drain out the hot water, immediately cool the eggs in the icy water and place them in an airtight container.

Refrigerate hard-cooked eggs 

Boiling can kill bacteria but will not keep them from recontamination. So, refrigerate your hard-cooked eggs before dyeing them or when you are not using them. Never leave eggs out of the refrigerator for more than two hours to avoid recontamination.

How to create perfect hollow eggs for decorating?

The most famous way to dye Easter eggs is using hollow eggs—eggs hollowed out with the help of a needle. However, hollowed eggs are delicate and fragile to handle and paint.

Supplies needed

  • Eggs 
  • Needle 
  • A Bowl 

Wash and dry the eggs.

Raw eggs contain bacteria and dirt, so please wash them carefully and dry them using a clean kitchen towel before puncturing them.

Puncture the egg using a needle

Take a large needle and puncture both ends of the shell. Make sure you punch the hand deep enough to smash the egg yolk.

Twist the needle

Move the needle in clockwise and anticlockwise motion, and extend it to the opposite side of the egg. 

Blow out the egg to empty it.

Carrying the egg over a bowl, blow the pierced hole and force the egg white and yolk out of the egg. Wash the shell with cold water, and allow it to dry thoroughly—time to decorate now.
