This egg is about to serve a very exciting and delicious purpose.
Instructables maker CeeeJ recently shared her deliciously easy home recipe for what she calls “Egg Jelly Jewels.”

What are egg jelly jewels? Essentially, they are artisanally flavored Jell-O-style sweet treats made with gelatin, dried fruits, and edible flowers.
The cooking process starts by lightly carving holes into the tops of eggshells, and then draining out the raw eggs inside.
cleaning egg shell
The eggshells then become molds for these cute little jelly eggs.
It’s important to rinse these shells thoroughly, preventing any raw egg from interfering with the Jell-O mold mixture

Once cleaned, the egg shells need to dry completely, protecting your desserts from any lingering moisture.
rose buds
Next comes the fun part, the filling! This Instructables user chose to fill her egg jelly jewels with dried strawberries, apples, and rosebuds.

She soaked her dry ingredients in boiling water, letting the fruits rehydrate and the flowers steep.
This step is where you can get creative, though. These egg jelly jewels can take on any flavor combination you so choose. Lavender blueberry or cinnamon apple, for example, are two delectable flavor options you could try.
And whichever fruit and floral mixture you choose will likely be high in vitamin C and antioxidants.
gelatin
As her fruit and flower concoction steeped, she began soaking her gelatin in cold water.
If you are vegetarian, though, and typically avoid using gelatin in recipes, there’s no need to fret. Try substituting agar in its place during this recipe step.

Once soaked, the gelatin will soften. Simply squeeze out any excess liquid, and add the gelatin into a pot with sugar water and the steeped rosebud and dried-fruit mixture. Just don’t use too much sugar if you want to keep things healthy!
filling eggs with jelly mixture
After you’ve combined all of the ingredients, it’s time to fill your eggshell molds.
Letting the jellies set inside these eggshells is also part of what makes these desserts healthy. The Jell-O-style mixture soaks in protein and minerals from the shell.

After at least two hours in the fridge, your eggs should be ready to serve.
