Place eggs in a saucepan and cover with water. Once water comes to a boil, continue to boil for 3 minutes then remove from heat and cover the pan. Let sit, covered and undisturbed for 12 minutes. Run tepid (not cold) water over the eggs until they can be handled. Cold water can make the eggs tighten and harder to peel. Peel shells off the eggs.
Mix 20 drops of food coloring with ½ cup water in a mug or small cup. Place egg into colored water and allow them to sit for two hours. Remove eggs from the colored water and rinse well. Slice in half to reveal the beautiful rings around the whites of the cooked egg!
