Easter Grass & Hard-Cooked Eggs

 
Easter Eggs

Grow a miniature meadow in an Easter basket—it's really simple. You'll need:

1 large Easter basket
1 lb wheat seed
1 lb vermiculite
plastic wrap or clear plastic bag

A week before Easter line a large Easter basket with plastic wrap and fill with vermiculite, about 2-inches deep (look for it in gardening departments). Sprinkle wheat seed on top of the vermiculite. Put the basket in the sink and add water until the seed bed is damp. You shouldn't have to water it again before Easter.

Set the basket in a pan and place in filtered sunlight. Cover loosely with plastic wrap or a clear plastic bag to keep moist. Remove the plastic after two days. The wheat should begin to sprout during the next few days. By Easter morning you would have real Easter grass to hide your eggs in.

How to Hard-Cook Eggs

Place eggs in single layer in a saucepan and cover with 1-inch cold water. Cover and bring to a boil. Turn off the heat and let the eggs stand in the water for 15 to 17 minutes. Plunge immediately into ice cold water. Let cool, then decorate.
