I love to keep things natural. Dyeing eggs is no exception. This year, I decided to forego the fake dyes to dye eggs. Don’t those fake chemical dyes seep into the egg? I decided from now on, I would use vegetable dyes. I used brown onion skin, red onion skin and turmeric for color. I was really happy with the results. Here is what you do:
1. Add 4 cups of water
2. 2 tablespoons of vinegar
3. Skin of 3 onions or 1 tablespoon of turmeric
- Red onion creates a dark red look
- Brown onion creates a rust color
- Turmeric creates a yellow color
Boil the egg, water, onion skins (or turmeric) and vinegar together for about 20 minutes. Let the eggs cool in the water for another 10 minutes. Remove the eggs from the water and let them cool. The results amazed me. The colors were so vibrant.
Voila! Healthy, non toxic garden inspired egg dye!
