Did you know you can dye Easter eggs without those coloured dye pills? You just need a few things from the fridge and pantry.
Bring 1 quart water and 2 tablespoons white vinegar to boil. Lower heat and add dye material (see below). Simmer the ingredients for 30 minutes and then strain the colored water into a bowl. Allow the dyed water to cool and then bathe the eggs in it for at least 30 minutes. Leaving them in the solution longer will intensify the colour.
Specific colour instructions for white eggs (if using brown eggs, these colors will come out a little different):
Pink: 4 cups chopped beets
Blue: 4 cups red chopped cabbage
Yellow: 4 tablespoons turmeric
Orange: 4 cups yellow onion skins
Red: 4 cups of red onion skins
Green: 4 cups of spinach
Give it a try, your kids will love it!
