    I don’t know if this is the same when using food colorings, but when I died eggs last year using foods/spices (purple cabbage, tumeric, etc.) I learned an important tip: if you are using “farm fresh” eggs (not from the grocery store) that are unwashed, you need to make sure you scrub them before using them, otherwise the natural “bloom” on the shell of the egg will repel the color! My eggs looked cute for a little while and then all the color started to bleed off. :(

    @lisa, My eggs didn’t have that problem; but mine were organic from the store. Thanks for the great tip!

    Hi!
    I did always afraid to color more than one egg at one time, as I really do not know how long can a boiled egg be stored in the refrigerator. as you try, yo may know the answer!
    :P

    @Defne, I think hard boiled eggs last about a week in the refrigerator. I’ve never eaten the eggs we dye, though, because they sit out for so long.
