- In a stock pot combine 8 cups of water with black food coloring. Place eggs in a single layer, cover and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and let stand for 15 minutes.
- Using a slotted spoon, place eggs on paper towels. Place colored water in fridge to cool. Use the end of the a wooden spoon to tap each egg in several places to slightly crack the shell. The more places you crack, the more veins the egg will have.
