In another in my series on using those leftover eggs from easter, here comes a very interesting recipe that TheWife and I tried out. As you can see from the picture, the eggs turned out a very interesting color when finished. While you're at it, go check out our Meat Pirogue, which is another use for hard-boiled eggs.
- 6 hard-boiled eggs
- 2 TBSP Dark tea leaves or 4 tea bags
- 2 TBSP soy sauce
- 2 1/2 cups water
With the back of a spoon, crack the eggs all over but DO NOT REMOVE THE SHELLS.
Bring the water to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer. Add the tea leaves or tea bags and simmer them for 5 minutes. The tea should be extremely dark. Remove from heat and stir in the soy sauce. Gently place the eggs in the liquid and set aside for at least 1 hour to soak. I think it could go to 1.5 hours.
Remove eggs, peel and eat.
