Cold water

Gently punch a tiny hole in large end of eggs; let eggs drain. Dampen
egg shells with water, and press clover or fern leaves face down on
shell. Cut stockings in pieces large enough to cover eggs. While
holding leaves in place, stretch and wrap a stocking piece around each
egg; twist lightly and tie securely with a thread or string. Place
eggs and onion skins in cold water in a large pan; gradually heat to
boiling. Reduce to low heat and simmer 30 minutes. Remove eggs; let
cool. Cut stocking from eggs; remove leaves. Eggs will be rosy brown
with a pattern of clover or fern leaves. ~Louisiana Farm Bureau
