  • Homemade Easter Egg Dyes

    naturally dyes Easter eggs

    Instead of using the store bought variety of Easter Egg dyes, which are usually just food coloring mixed with vinegar, here are some suggestions for all natural ingredients that work just as well.

    • Brown–outer layers of an onion,¬†coffee or tea
    • Green– spinach or dandelion leaves
    • Orange– ground turmeric, celery seed and or orange peels
    • Blue– crushed blueberries
    • Red– crushed cranberries or raspberries
    • Pink– chopped rhubarb or beet juice

    Place eggs in sauce pan with enough water to cover them, add your “dye” and 1 to 2 tablespoons of vinegar and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes. Cook your eggs and color them at the same time. How efficient!
