Natural Dyed Easter Eggs

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.
