Title: Kokina avga (easter eggs)
Categories: Cheese/eggs, Greek
Yield: 1 Servings
3/4 c Vinegar
Red food dye or coloring
A few cotton balls
One of the nicest Greek customs is the use of red eggs for the
Easter celebration. It is unthinkable to set an Easter table without
these eggs, for they add to the celebration and happy atmosphere.
Carefully wash and dry each egg. Set a large pot of water to
boil. Add a red dye or food coloring and 3/4 cup of vinegar to the
water, and boil for a few minutes. Slowly lower the eggs into the
pot, and when the water comes to a boil, lower the heat. Let eggs
simmer for 15 min., then remove them carefully from the pot. If you
plan to cook more eggs, add an additional 2 tbs. vinegar to the
water. Wipe cooked eggs with an oil-soaked cotton ball, then wipe
each egg with a clean dry cloth. Place on a platter. Serve cold.
