Natural Egg Dye

These all-natural egg dyes allow you to skip the food coloring and use items you already have on hand! They’re most effective when eggs are soaked in color overnight in the refrigerator, especially when using brown eggs. For every dozen eggs, plan on using at least 4 cups of dye liquid.

Orange eggs
Boil 2 cups of water with peels of 3-5 yellow onions. Boil on medium for 15 minutes. Strain and add 2 tsp white vinegar.

Yellow eggs
Add 2 Tbsp turmeric to 1 cup water. Stir and add 2 Tbsp white vinegar.

Blue eggs
Boil a pot of water with a head of chopped red cabbage. Boil on medium for 20-30 minutes. Strain and add 1 Tbsp white vinegar.

Red eggs
Boil 2 cups of water with 2 cups of chopped beets. Boil on medium for 15 minutes. Strain and add 2 tsp white vinegar.
