- 1 dozen (or more) uncooked white eggs
- White vinegar
- Gel food coloring
- Place eggs in a single layer in the bottom of a large saucepan. Cover eggs by about 1 inch with cool water. Slowly bring to a boil over medium heat. Once boiling, cover the pan and remove from heat. Let sit 12 minutes.
- Carefully drain the eggs and run them under cold water until they’re cool enough to handle. Transfer the eggs to an empty egg carton to cool completely.
- In a sealable quart-size container, combine 3 cups water, 1 tablespoon white vinegar and 1 tablespoon gel food coloring (repeat this step in separate containers for each color you want to use). Be sure gel food coloring is completely dissolved.
- Using the back of a spoon, carefully tap eggs all over so the shells are cracked. Dip up to 4 eggs in each container. Dye at least 30 minutes but preferably overnight, sealed in the refrigerator.
- Remove eggs from the dye; gently dry with a paper towel. Carefully peel the shells to reveal the “crackled” eggs inside.
