Greek Easter was today, and to celebrate we dye hard boiled eggs a very rich shade of red. I've always kept hard boiled eggs in their shell in the refrigerator for up to a week.
But I just found out my inlaws keep their hard boiled easter eggs all year for good luck, on the counter, not even in the refrigerator... and eat them! That tickles my gag reflex but they've been doing it for years and seem fine. In fact my husband puts a hard boiled egg in his pocket in the morning and eats it as a snack after work.
