About this recipe: Hard boiled eggs soaked in food colouring, giving them a marbled effect. Very easy to do and a great way to get your kids interested in eggs, and not to mention a great way to give a bit of life and colour to a salad. It'll have people talking.

  1. Place eggs in a pot of cold water. Bring the water to the boil and simmer till the eggs are hard boiled, about 12 minutes.
  2. Next run cold water over them until you can handle them. Then you take a small spoon and tap gently til the shells crack.
  3. Take a container or two of water and add the food colouring; the darker the better.
  4. Put your eggs in the coloured water and leave them in the fridge for 2 to 3 hours so the colour will take to the egg.
  5. Now for the final step: very gently begin to peel the eggs and see what effect you come out with.
