Did you know that you can easily make natural Easter egg dyes.....from food scraps?!
All you need to make beautiful pastel colored eggs at home is: - boiled eggs - water - vinegar - and various food scraps!
A variety of colors are possible using food scraps such as , onion peels, turmeric, coffee grounds, red cabbage, and beets!
Pick your coloring agent. (We've picked turmeric for this example).
Prepare the dye mixture. Simmer 1 tablespoon of ground turmeric in 2 cups water for 10 to 15 minutes.
Add the vinegar. Stir in 1 tablespoon white vinegar and let the dye cool.
Add the Eggs. Place the boiled eggs in the cooled egg dye. Let the eggs sit in the dye for 1 to 3 hours.
The longer the eggs sit in the dye, the deeper the color of the dyed eggs!
Repeat the steps with different food scraps!
