  • 3

    **NOTE: Shake up jar two times a day for even coloring. I refrigerate for FOUR days to have the purple hue permeate the entire egg white. Sometimes I cut the eggs in half right before serving for an added visual pizazz! **Also, I've boiled fresh beets, reserving that juice, and have had great-if not better-results.
