What You Will Need
Eggs
Glass or enamel pot (I used a pot with an enamel pot inside)
Silk (ties, blouses, or boxers, cut into pieces large enough to cover an egg)
White scrap cotton fabric
Twist ties (I used florists’ wire)
3 tablespoons of white vinegar
Warm water
Vegetable oil
Paper towels
Tongs or spoon

How To
1. Cut silk into a square (or a piece) large enough to wrap around a raw egg.

2. Wrap a raw egg with a piece of silk, making sure the printed side of the material is facing the egg.

3. Place the silk-wrapped egg in the piece of scrap white fabric and secure tightly with a twist-tie.

4. Place the egg(s) in an enamel or glass pot. Fill pot with water to cover eggs completely.

5. Add three tablespoons of white vinegar.

6. Bring water to a boil, turn heat down, and simmer for 20 minutes (longer if you plan on eating the eggs).

7. Remove eggs from water with tongs or spoon and let cool.

8. Remove silk from cooled egg.

9. For shiny eggs, wipe with vegetable oil after completing step 8.
