How to Properly Cook The Perfect Easter Egg for Dying
If you’re going to dye eggs, you might as well cook them correctly. We do ours in our Instant Pot!
You can boil eggs in 3-7 minutes in your Instant Pot and they will come out perfect every single time! Depending on how long you cook them will make them a soft boiled, a medium-boiled, or a hard-boiled.
I personally prefer a soft boil. I love a little runny yolk, so 3-4 minutes is the perfect time for me.
All you need is your Instant Pot, the metal trivet, 1 cup water, and 6-12 eggs.
From there, you can set your timer anywhere from 3-7 minutes depending on how you like your eggs cooked and you’re ready to go!
The best part of cooking eggs in an Instant Pot is that they’re easier to peel than traditional hard-boiled eggs done on a stovetop and they don’t need to be monitored. The Instant Pot seriously has changed how we make eggs in our home.
To help your dyed Easter eggs last, once you’re done coloring them, it is important to store them unpeeled in an airtight container in the fridge. Hard-boiled eggs will stay fresh for one week. The shells protect them from lingering bacteria, but, once you peel them you’ll need to eat them right away.
