Wrap early small spring flowers and grasses onto eggs, dog violets and primulas are particularly attractive, cover with onion peels, the larger the better.  Fix with a few turns of string.  Bring to the boil from cold and let simmer for a couple of minutes.  Switch off, lid on and let eggs cool.  Uncover eggs and wipe to bring out the shine with a bit of bacon fat, or a few drops of oil.
