Yes, it's a bit messy. But so worth it!
Eggs dyed in cups of hot water, a tablespoon of vinegar and a few drops of food coloring. My kids loved making eggs of every hue by dipping into more than one pot.
P.S. We will be eating quite a bit of deviled egg, egg salad and potato salad (and anything else I can think of with boiled egg) in the next week. Maybe I should send out the SOS for egg recipes now.
