Did you know that our eggs are all locally raised? Looking for ways to stay green while dyeing your Easter Eggs? Here are some cool tips on how to dye eggs naturally:
• Blue – cut red cabbage into chunks, add 4 cups boiling water & 2 Tbsp. white vinegar. Cool to room temp and remove cabbage.
• Green – Save your red onion skin! Simmer skins (from about 5-6 red onions) in 2 cups water for about 15 minutes. Remove skins and add 3 tsp. white vinegar.
• Orange – Save your yellow onion skin too! Simmer skins (from about 6-7 yellow onions) in 2 cups water for about 15 minutes. Remove skins and add 3 tsp. white vinegar.
• Light reddish – Add 3 tbsp. paprika to 2 cups boiling water. Once mixed, add 3 tsp. white vinegar.
• Yellow – Boil peels of 6 oranges in 2 cups water for 20 minutes. Remove peels and add 2 tsp. white vinegar.
• Pink – Boil 1 large beet, cut into chunks, in about 2 cups water for 20 minutes. Stir in 2 Tbsp. white vinegar and let cool to room temperature. Once cool, remove beets.
• Light purple – Mix 1 ½ cups grape juice with 1 tbsp white vinegar.
Either brown or white eggs can be dyed! Hard boil and cool eggs prior to dying them.
