Once your Easter eggs are peeled you lose that pretty color, why not color the eggs after they are peeled and take that color to the dinner table for all to enjoy. I use food coloring so I know it is safe to consume. Just boil the eggs let them cool, peel and color as usual using a few drops of food coloring, 1 cup cold water, 1 Tbsp. vinegar to color them. Then make beautiful colored deviled eggs with your favorite recipe.

If you want to serve deviled eggs for Easter brunch, you can even color the cooked egg white by soaking it in a food coloring bath before filling it.

What a neat idea, I bet they are so pretty all together on a dish.
Any ideas on natural dyes for food? I especially like the beat juice idea! (03/22/2007)
I did this! I used the regular home recipe for egg dye: water, vinegar, food coloring. dipped, dried off, and deviled the eggs! sorry about the photo quality! (04/13/2007)
