Cascarones!!!

We just completed making 11 dozen.  (Munkii, you know what I am talking about).  We have saved egg shells for a whole year, I dyed them all on Sunday, filled them all with confetti on Monday, and finally finished sealing them up yesterday.

Re: Cascarones!!!

  • For some reason Isaac's family doesn't do this... I think the white member of the family will need to remember this and bring the tradition to life next year.  Remind me so I can save shells next year.  ~heehee~  ;o)

  • I need more details on this tradition -- what do you do with these, how did you dye them such pretty bright colors, how do you save shells all year, and how do you get confetti in them?!  I need to know more!

    what do you do with these, You break them over people's heads.  Its supposed to be good luck I believe.

    how did you dye them such pretty bright colors, Lots of extra dye and vinegar. This is not actually a picture of mine but mine are pretty bright.

    how do you save shells all year- We just poke a hole in the top of each egg to remove the yolk/whites before we cook them and then rinse the empty shells and put them back in the carton.  We store all of the empty shells in the garage.

    how do you get confetti in them?!  We just spoon them in.  It's really easy, just time consuming.

  • We only made them once or twice when I was really little; so I don't remember much about them.  They are supposed to be good luck when cracked over the head.  What a PITA!  So pretty, though :)

  • Well I learned something new today....sounds like fun to me!
