How to properly boil eggs for dyeing?

Before cooking, take the eggs out of the refrigerator, wipe them and leave them for a while at room temperature.

The next thing you need to do for cooking eggs for dyeing, is to pour cold water into a pot and add 1½ teaspoons of salt per liter of water. Make sure that in lend enough water, so that the eggs are completely covered. Boil the water and slowly add the eggs. This prevents the egg shell from cracking and the white becoming tough. When the water boils again, reduce the heat and cook them for 8-10 minutes. Or you can also put them in cold water and the cooking time measure from the moment the water boils.

You can only prepare properly hard-boiled eggs if you measure the cooking time precisely, because if you cook them too long, they will turn green. Hard boiled eggs can be kept in the refrigerator for 4 days; and peeled hard-boiled eggs for a maximum of 2 days.
