Dyeing Eggs

Dyeing Eggs

We’ve perfected the schedule for dying natural Easter eggs: make the dyes on Friday night, then let them steep overnight. (And the recipe for natural dye is here!)

We do the eggs in them the next morning, and steep them for a few hours.

And because we have brown eggs, green eggs and all colors in between, the colors turn all kinds of beautiful earthy tones.

One word of advice (for me) for next year, though: Red Zinger (hibiscus), just doesn’t work. Don’t bother.
