Onion Skins Colored Eggs

A bit too much sunlight on the eggs but they were a reddish color.

My sister made these beautiful colored eggs.  She peeled the paper skins off a mesh bag of yellow onions, down to the onion part.  Boiled the eggs and skins together slowly for a long time.  The eggshells became a rich reddish color.  After the dinner on Monday we played the egg game, trying to crack the other person’s egg with yours. Fredi suggested using the smaller tip like a torpedo.  His coaching worked for me and my egg was the winner, although the other guests might have felt it fixed, with the hostess’s sister winning! You win if your egg remains uncracked at the end of the game.  Mary said it had Armenian and Greek roots (the egg game.)  A competitive group!
