Place the eggs in a large saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to the boil and simmer gently for 12-15 minutes. Cool, then tap the shells gently with a spoon so that the shells form tiny mosaic patterns.
Return the eggs to the saucepan, cover with warm water and add the remaining ingredients. Bring to the boil and simmer gently for 1 - 1 1/2 hours. Leave to cool.
Remove shells from the eggs and admire their beautiful marbled appearance.
