Hard boiled decorated eggs? How strange. Never even knew people did that. We have always used blown eggs and assumed everyone did the same. How do you hang up hard boiled eggs?

We have always dyed/decorated hard boiled and blown eggs in equal numbers, so can't help you there.

You don`t Billy, you eat them!! We used to have them for breakfast with cold boiled bacon, or roll them or hunt them.

Not according to CWs link, Pol.

Rolling HB eggs we used to do. Hunting has always been for little chocolate eggs.

A propos blown eggs - it is a process I have always found fascinating since childhood. That the whole egg comes out, usually without breaking the yolk, from such a tiny hole has always seemed a bit like a conjuring trick to me.

The contents of the link page say things like

One of the advantages of the Easter egg tradition is that the decorated eggs can be consumed, but only if you have practiced good food safety rules with your decorated eggs.

If having an Easter egg hunt, only allow eggs to be out of the refrigerator for two hours or less, or prepare a separate batch of eggs just for the hunt.

Quite clearly it refers to eating the hard boiled eggs...if good food safety rules have been followed...which was the point of me putting up this link, in the first place, to go with the decorated egg thread I also posted up.

I can remember dyeing and decorating hard boiled eggs when I was at Brownies many years ago. We dyed the eggs blue - when I took the shell off to eat the egg some time later the egg was a very unappetising colour. (I probably still ate it - being ravenously hungry a lot of the time was a childhood memory because of the amount of energy we used up charging about!!)

When Cg goes to brownies, all they seem to do is make chocolate related stuff! Rolling Eyes

Oh me too, Billy. I remember standing there wide eyed watching Dad blow the entire contents out through a tiny pin hole, worst bit was when he accidentally picked up a fertilized one... Shocked that wasn't quite so magical, more euuuuuu!!

I just love eggs, more so when they're choccy ones, mind you.. Embarassed Wink
