  1. My grandmother had the most wonderful color on her eggs. As a child, I wondered how she had gotten such colors from the Pazz Easter Egg dye. For years I looked!

    Little did I know she had free range eggs and were NATURALLY those beautiful colors!

    I remember pocking eggs with her. She always won!!! I flat out asked her one time if she cheated! I think it was how she held the egg. I never figured it out and she never told me!
