Make My Saturday Sweet - Blog Hop #30

How to Turn Brown Eggs White

There are only brown eggs sold in South Africa.
I'm glad about keeping things natural,
but I wanted to have white eggs
for Amanda to color her first
American style Easter eggs.
I found out on Wiki that you can boil
brown eggs in vinegar to turn them white.

Add vinegar to fill a medium size pot half full.
Don't fill the pot, because the foam that comes
off of the brown eggs rises quite high. Boil
the eggs gently for about 15 minutes.
Check to see if they are ready.

When they are ready, the eggs will be almost
completely white and then you can remove them
and allow them to cool at room temperature.

The only problem with this method is that
the shells become very thin and crack easily.
I began with 10 eggs and only 4 were
good enough to use for our Easter coloring project.
The photo of our 4 Easter eggs is at the top.
The rest I used in egg salad sandwiches.

Happy Easter!
