2. Add 1 teaspoon of salt
3. Bring to a boil over high heat.
4. Right when it boils, turn the heat off and cover the pan with a lid
5. Wait 15 minutes.
6. After 15 minutes has passed, drain the hot water and cover in ice water to cool the eggs and stop the cooking process.
That’s it! After the eggs have cooled, you are ready to dye them your favorite Easter colors.
