Coloring Eggs for Easter
If coloring the eggs for Easter, return them to the refrigerator as soon as you're done dyeing them. Don't let hard-cooked eggs stand at room temperature for more than 2 hours. If you plan on using hard-cooked eggs as Easter decorations, cook extra eggs for eating and discard the eggs on display. Don't eat any colored eggs that have cracked. Either throw them out immediately or use them for display and then discard.
