Natural Egg Dye Recipes
Blue: Use Red Cabbage to dye the eggs blue. Just cut 1/4 head red cabbage into chunks and add to 4 cups of boiling water. Let cool to room temperature and remove cabbage with a slotted spoon. Add vinegar.
Yellow: Stir 2 tablespoons of ground tumeric into 1 cup of boiling water. Add vinegar.
Green: Add a cup of spinach or a few teaspoons of spirulina to boiling water. Add vinegar.
Pink: Beet-dyed eggs will darken the longer they sit in the liquid. Cut 1 medium beet into chunks and add to 4 cups boiling water. Stir in vinegar and let cool to room temperature before removing beets.
Light Blue: Mix 1 cup frozen blueberries with 1 cup water, bring to room temperature and remove blueberries. Do not add vinegar.
Orange: Longer soaking of these onion-dyed eggs will help you achieve a darker color. Take the skin of 6 yellow onions and simmer in 2 cups of water for 15 minutes, then strain. Add vinegar.
Lavender: Mix 1 cup grape juice and 1 tablespoon vinegar.
