Method of cooking marble eggs for Easter
Red onion husks are a must. Do not believe that it will color the shell in dark purple color. Despite the obvious difference in the colors of the onions, the purple husk paints in dark brown, just about two shades darker than yellow. So, take the scissors and finely cut the clothes of the red bow.
Next, undress the yellow onions, and also finely chop his clothes. If you stock up on husks in advance, then a dozen eggs will need a half-liter jar of each color, which is not very dense.
Approximately half a sheet of writing paper is cut into small squares and thin strips. The more varied pieces of paper, the more interesting the result.
Mix the cut. The amount of cut paper should be 2-3 times less than the husk. If you take more, then the eggs will turn out pale, with a large number of white spots.

We put wet eggs in a plate with cutting, roll in this improvised breading completely.
Cut the required number of squares of gauze or mesh fabric. Put the egg in the center of the gauze square, tighten the edges with a rubber band or tie up with a string.
Fingers, through the fabric, distribute inside the gauze bag the shelling of the shell, so that no large blank spots remain.
If the slices roll into one place, soak the egg in a cloth with cold water.
Put the packed eggs in a stainless steel saucepan and fill with cold water.
Pour into a saucepan approximately half of a bubble of green, the amount of which directly depends on the intensity you want to get the color. In general, the more, the greener.
Put the saucepan on the fire, bring to a boil, cook for 15 minutes on moderate fire.
Carefully drain the green boiling water, wash the packed eggs with cold water until it cools.
Then put on gloves, remove gauze, remove paper particles, rinse with running water.
To make the testicles shine like polished marble, we lubricate the shell with a drop of thick olive oil.
