 People who have an Instant Pot sing its praises for cutting down cooking times and simplifying life.  So get ready to be amazed again because not only can you can cook and dye Easter eggs in an Instant Pot, it take just six minutes to do it all!  All you need is water, liquid food coloring, white vinegar, eggs and a set of glass pint canning jars.  Using pint jars also allows you to dye multiple colors of eggs at once and you can generally fit four wide-mouth pint jars in a 8-quart Instant Pot. Just remember to use the wire rack at the bottom of the Instant Pot to keep the jars from sitting directly on the bottom. However because the method is so fast, you can repeat it with additional colors and eggs if you are not able to use more than one of two jars. Now that you know how many jars can fit inside, it's time to create the dye mixture. Add two tablespoons of white vinegar and at least 10-12 drops of liquid food coloring to each jar, then fill each jar with raw eggs. You should be able to fit 2-3 eggs into each jar. Top the jar off with enough water to cover the eggs. Before you place the jars in the Instant Pot, add one cup of water and then place the jars on the wire rack, close the lid, and set it to natural release. Cook on high pressure for six minutes, then let the steam naturally release for six minutes. Remove the eggs and dunk each one in ice water to cool, then let dry.
