PACE EGGS

Print Print

Every Easter my mom and I would make Pace Eggs. It’s a lovely eco-friendly way of decorating eggs without using any dye. Pace Eggs were an very old English Tradition: Hardboiled eggs which were given to friends and relatives as a token of goodwill. Kids would also “harp” with their eggs, which was a game where you knocked your egg against your opponents with the hope that their egg would crack first! We don’t do the “jarring” but I made a basket of these eggs with my daughter because they look so pretty and work beautifully as an Easter table centerpiece.

Here’s how to make them.

  1. These are very beautiful! I never cared for dying eggs in those bright solid colours, but my husband enjoys it as an Easter tradition. This I would actually enjoy though, so it would be a great compromise!

    Which part of the country are pace eggs from? I am English, and while I remember doing things like seeing who’s egg would crack first (we sometimes did that by rolling them down a hill) I do not remember pace eggs.
