Tired of normal white-and-yellow hard boiled eggs? Now you can make swirly colored tie-dye style hard-boiled eggs!

Step 1: Materials

Several Eggs
1 Syringe
Food Coloring
Plastic Cups
sucking on a raw egg w/ your mouth is just asking for salmonella.
If you look at the picture you will see they are sucking it out with a syringe, not their mouth. A much better idea for food handling safety.
Doesn't matter what you suck it with, if there is salmonella on the shell it will contaminate the egg or you or whatever it touches up until the point that it is cooked and killed. However it is highly unlikely that there is salmonella on the shell and even so, by the time the egg is cooked it will be killed. <br><br>I suppose &quot;go suck an egg&quot; would be an insult if you want the person to get salmonella, but they'd have to such a lot of eggs before that would happen.<br><br>Creepy but cool instructable. Does the color appear outside of the shell after boiling? I ask because it could be a fun surprise to make some of these for easter and let the kids crack open their plain eggs just to discover the color on the inside.
That ain't what We used to use with &quot;Electrical Bananas&quot; is It.?
*wishes you'd washed your fingers before the main&nbsp;photo* ...ewww.<br /> Nice concept though. I got cool eggs too ...check' em.
<br/>&quot;If you pull too hard, the egg will implode&quot;<br/><br/>&quot;BOY i wanna see that!&quot;<br/><br/>*runs to the kitchen with a sringhe in his hand* <br/>
Man, that's one "cracked" idea... The leaky egg (last photo, step 7) reminds me of the scene in "Blade Runner" where Roy and Leon "question" the fellow in the eyball lab, and Leon starts playing with the eyes. Perhaps that's how the prop eyes were made... Kool-Aid note: I suppose you could use a strong solution of Kool-Aid to dye the eggs, instead of food colouring. A guy I knew in high school used to carve wooden pipes and such, and dye them with Kool-Aid, or maybe it was Freshie. Technical note: Do you really need to remove some albumen? Eggs have a small air space inside, that should compress enough to allow the dye injection. Heh heh. I gotta try this for Easter...
Interesting: There is no cool aid. You do understand the phrase "Electric cool aid" comes from Tim Leary's days of mixing up batches of cool aid with LSD and throwing a big party? It was once legal to use.
koolaid or not it still looks nasty as hell.... hope it tasted alot better then it looked. the one that said it wasnt shaken'd looked like it was still raw egg where the coloring was...gross
Should taste identical to any non-colored egg. Food coloring is by nature colorless.
umm, that doesn't really make sense
don't you mean tasteless?
No, colorless.
"Food coloring is by nature colorless. " quote of the day!
Yup - tastes like normal eggs! I imagine this could make for a cool egg salad, in retrospect.
Do you have more boiling casualties, as the shell has been weakened?
Cool, I Like the multi-colored one the best! ~Shifrin
"You can also suck out the egg whites with your mouth." laff :) What makes people think its unpleasant to look at is: blue is not a usual food color, except some berries which are actually purple,should try to improve the injection to make the color more homogenic around the yolk, but its a funny guide :)
Cool! This could be great at a party.<br/><br/>You might be better off <em>not</em> sucking out raw egg white with your mouth, like it says in step 3. While your chances of catching salmonella are kind of slim, it's not a nice thing to go down with.<br/>
That may be the most disgusting thing I've ever seen. I should try that next time I want to persuade people that they should never leave me in the kitchen.
