While having the chance to spend one whole week with Oma, she gave me plenty of opinions.
It's funny, when I ask Oma to give me a list of her 'opinions' she is at a loss, however, just being around her for some time and watching how she does things like cooking, cleaning, etc., I was able to pick up plenty of her 'opinons' on my own.
Today, let's read what "Oma's Opinion" is on "Naturally Dyeing Easter Eggs".
While she gave me two natural ways of dyeing them, we did some research and discovered that there are several ways you can naturally dye eggs, so let's find out how you can save yourself some money, be environmentally friendly and teach your children or grandchildren the art of egg dyeing too!
With all of these items, you can boil the eggs directly in the pot with the dyeing ingredient. Boil the eggs until they are hard boiled and the desired color intensity is reached.
Beets = Red Colored Eggs
You can either use fresh or canned. One bunch or 2 large cans of beets per 6 eggs.
Spinach = Green Colored Eggs
One bunch of fresh spinach, canned or frozen will work too! Add some water in to start the boiling.
Blueberries = Blue Colored Eggs
One bag of frozen, or two containers of fresh, you'll need to add some water to them as well.
Onion Skins = Yellow Colored Eggs
You'll need at least 4 cups of yellow onion skins with water added.
Grape Juice = Purplish Colored Eggs
Boil half or more of the container of grape juice with the eggs.
Cranberry Juice = Pink Colored Eggs
Boiling the cranberry juice at full strength and adding the eggs will produce a pink colored egg!
Now, aren't those some pretty cool opinions on how to naturally dye Easter eggs?
