My grandparents always made these eggs when we were growing up. I wanted to give them a go. You need some white eggs, yellow onion peels (I used from 6 onions), Easter flower leaves (what my grandmother calls them - I know them as daffodils), and string. Oh - and it takes 2 people to do them.
You wrap the leaves around the eggs, in whatever configuration you want, then tie a string very tightly around the leaf to hold it in place (this is why it takes two people).
Put all of the eggs in a large pot.
Add your onion peels.
Cover everything with water, and turn it up to boil.
Boil the eggs ten minutes, then - here's what you get!
Aren't they beautiful?
Have fun! I'd love to know if you try it!
