How To Dye Eggs Naturally
How can I naturally dye eggs for Easter? Easy natural Easter egg dye recipes.
It’s simple. Heat 4 cups water plus 2 Tbsp. distilled white vinegar in a pot to a boil. Add your dye ingredients (see below) for the color you want; simmer dye for 30 minutes, then let cool. Strain the dye; add hard-cooked eggs and let them soak at least 30 minutes at room temperature or overnight in the refrigerator (depending upon how vibrant you want the color to be). Then remove the eggs from the dye and pat them dry.
For yellow, add 6 green tea bags. For pink, add 4 cups chopped beets. For blue, add 4 cups chopped red cabbage. For orange, add 4 cups yellow onion skins. And for silver/lavender, omit the vinegar, combine 4 cups each hot water and frozen blueberries until room temperature; strain, then add eggs and let soak 30 minutes or longer.
