How to Make a Jade Green Egg

Recipe By: Tobuchan (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/25)
Makes 2 Cook: 150 min

Ingredients

Boiled eggs 2
Red cabbage 1/2
Bicarbonate of soda 1.5 tbsp

Method

1
Make 2 boiled eggs. Chop the red cabbage and add to 3-4 litres boiling water for 5 minutes.
2
You'll get a lovely blue liquid. Drain this into a bowl (use the cabbage in another recipe). Add the soda and the blue will change to green.
3
Soak the eggs for 2 hours. I peeled one completely and smashed the shell of the other one all over to get fine cracks (on the right). This is the result.
4
For blue eggs, soak the eggs straight into the red cabbage liquid.
5
For purple eggs, add 2 tbsp lemon juice. It reminds me of chemistry classes at school and using litmus paper!
6
You can use tofu instead of boiled eggs to get a colourful salad ingredient.

Tips & Note
