EasterEggs

Making gorgeous Easter eggs is quick-and-easy with natural ingredients you may already have in your kitchen. Ditch the artificial dyes and pull out the onion skins. Or the spinach. Or a bag of your favorite tea.

We demonstrated coloring eggs naturally on the March 26 broadcast of Coast Live; check out the video HERE [LINK]

Here’s our tips on making egg-ceptional Easter eggs.


HARD BOIL THE EGGS

PICK YOUR COLORS

Different fruits, vegetables, spices and other natural foods create  their own unique colors when prepared into a dye:

Blue (light)  = blueberries

Brown (light) = coffee or tea

Green (light) = spinach

Orange (light) = chili powder

Pink = red beets

Purple (light) = red onion skin or red cabbage

Yellow (light) = yellow onion skins

Yellow (bright) =  turmeric


PREPARE THE (ALL NATURAL) DYE / COLOR THE EGGS

+ Chop or mash fruits or vegetables to equal 4 cups; place in a large, sealable glass jar

+ If using spices, add 4 tablespoons to a large mason jar

+ Add eggs to mason jar

+ Add 4 cups boiling water

+ Add 2 tablespoons white vinegar

+ Seal the jar and place in the refrigerator overnight


EMBELLISH THE EGG

+ Stretch rubber bands around the eggs to create a tie-dye effect

+ Draw or write on eggs with a white crayon; when the eggs are dyed the area where you write/draw will remain plain
