How long do hard boiled eggs last?
We are doing Easter eggs this weekend and I suspect our son will want to do A LOT of eggs. What is the general rule of thumb on how long hard boiled eggs keep?
I am not a health clinician but I say 5-7 days at the VERY longest, but they are best (to my mind) only for a few days after cooking--think of hard boiled Easter eggs as any cooked food (in a very pretty package though...) :-)
You could always go the old-fashioned "hollow egg" decorating route (pinhole at one end, slightly larger hole at the other and "blow out" innards, seal holes with wax).
