Eggs for Ostara

Ostara (vernal equinox) is fast approaching, so I’d like to share with you my favorite recipie for this Sabbat!

This recipie teakes a few days to prepare, but its oh-so-worth it, especially if children are involved in the Ritual…

You will need:
A dozen large eggs
3 colors of Food coloring
1/4 cup Mayonnaise
1/4 cup Sour Cream
1 tsp Mustard Powder
Paprika to Garnish
Hard boil the eggs, when cool; peel. Stuff the eggs in a large wide-mouth jar. I mean really stuff them, so they’re as compacted as possible. In a bowl, mix about five or six drops of food coloring (1st color) with about 2 cups of boiling water and 1/4 tsp of vinegar. Pour over the eggs, put them in the fridge overnight.

Remove the eggs; rinse. Empty & wash the jar. Re-stuff the eggs in the jar as before. Mix the second color of food coloring with the same amounts of water and vinegar. Pour over the eggs and refrigerate overnight.

Repeat for the third color.

Rinse the eggs. You now have a dozen multi-colored eggs. 🙂

Cut the eggs in half, empty the yolks into a bow. Add the mayonnaise, sour cream, and mustard; mix well. Spoon the mixture into an icing bag with a star tip, squeeze out any air bubble in the bag. In a spiral fashion, return the yolks to the happy-looking multi-colored egg-whites. Garnish with paprika.

    1. If your natural color is flavorless, definetly. If its in powder form, I would use a 1/4 teaspoon in the hot water, as powdered color tends to be more concentrated in pigments.
