I’ve been wanting to try natural dyed Easter eggs for ages but had never done it because I was afraid it would be a lot of preparation for the result. Therefore I opted to use only 3 dye agents which was fine because so many different shades came out of them depending on how long I left the hard boiled eggs soaking.
Here’s how I did it
Blue- cups of chopped purple cabbage, 1 Qt of water, 2 tablespoons of vinegar
Turmeric- You will get a golden yellow- 3 tablespoons of turmeric, 1 quart of water, 2 tablespoons of vinegar
Coffee- hues of brown and this turned out the most even and dyed the fastest. 1qt of coffee, 2tablespoons of vinegar
I soaked all the eggs for about 30 min
I love how they turned out, such soft colors, even when dried. I’ll still be making some bright colored paas once the kids are out of school.
