Did you know that you can dye your Easter eggs with what you already have in your kitchen?
There are many simple ingredients that can be used as natural, non-toxic dyes and you can find them either in your fridge or in your cupboards. I used red onion skin, blueberry, spinach, lemon and beetroot.
You can also try out: Onion skin, turmeric, saffron, yellow pepper, red pepper, cranberry, raspberry, red cabbage, red wine, coffee, tea… It’s not very complicated, but it just takes a bit of time!
This is how you do it:
1. Wash the eggs to get rid of the oily layer, then boil them for about 8 min.
2. Separately, boil some water with the food (one at a time) of your choice and a dash of vinegar for about 10-15 min until the water gets a strong colour.
3. Cool the coloured water a bit before you put the eggs in. Let them stay there until you have the colour you want.
Some colours will get stronger when they dry and some will fade a bit. You just have to try it out!
