                         Uncooked Eggs
      3/4  cup           Vinegar
                         Red food dye or coloring

                         A few cotton balls
 One of the nicest Greek customs is the use of red eggs for the Easter
celebration.  It is unthinkable to set an Easter table without these eggs, for
they add to the celebration and happy atmosphere.
  To prepare:
   Carefully wash and dry each egg.  Set a large pot of water to boil. Add a red
 dye or food coloring and 3/4 cup of vinegar to the water, and boil for a few
 minutes. Slowly lower the eggs into the pot, and when the water comes to a boil,
 lower the heat.  Let eggs simmer for 15 min., then remove them carefully from
 the pot. If you plan to cook more eggs, add an additional 2 tbs. vinegar to the
 water.  Wipe cooked eggs with an oil-soaked cotton ball, then wipe each egg with
 a clean dry cloth. Place on a platter. Serve cold.
