How to make colored deviled eggs for Easter! Learn here how to make them so they have no nasty taste from the food coloring or the so-called needed vinegar. There are several how-to’s online for these and have no idea whose idea it was originally. Whatever you do, do NOT add vinegar to the colored water or your eggs will taste like vinegar. Who wants that?!?!
What you’ll need:
hard boiled eggs, peeled and cooled
food coloring (liquid works best)
whatever ingredients you need to make your favorite deviled eggs recipe (I use mayo, mustard, salt and paprika)
Use 1 drop of liquid food coloring for each 3/4 cups of water. Any more than that and you will taste the food coloring which is not a pleasant taste. Cut the eggs in half and put the yolks into a bowl. Take the whites and rinse them if you so choose, it doesn’t really matter, and put them into the colored water. Let sit for 30-45 minutes or until desired shade is reached. Drain and rinse the whites with fresh cold water. Let dry somewhat on a paper towel and then fill with the yolk mixture you made while the whites were being colored. Put onto a plate or an egg platter and enjoy!
