Weird but Eyecatching - Blue Egg!

What a surprise, see the main ingredient below that makes this egg an amazing vivid blue!

Recipe By: Tobuchan (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/25)
Makes 2 Cook: 120 min

Ingredients

Red cabbage 1/2
Hard boiled eggs 2

Method

1
Cut the red cabbage into half then roughly chop.
2
Boil lots of water and add the cabbage. Boil for 5 minutes before draining the water into a bowl. Keep the water.
3
While it's hot, add the peeled hard boiled eggs into the water and keep for 2 hours.
4
Even after 1 hour, it begins to look rather blue!
5
Don't waste the boiled red cabbage, I made a salad with pine nuts and gherkins, see the recipe here.

Tips & Note

This is called a red cabbage, but it's definitely more purple than red - and purple is half blue! If eggs can turn out like this, I'll give it a go with some other things...By the way, the eggs are perfectly edible!
