Easter Eggs

Posted by

    • I wanted to repost this fun Easter egg dying experiment which we did three years ago.

      The eggs turned out so pretty, we are going do it again this week.

      ....this year we are planning an Easter Egg Hunt in the garden where our granddaughter Ava and our two year old Border collie Mo will be in the competition who finds more eggs......

      We ended up loving the colours of the eggs and decided that we will be dying our eggs this way from now on....It was a lot more fun and exciting than using store bought dye because you really didn't know what colour the eggs turned out to be.

      A few of the foods we used to create some of our favourite colours.

      Turmeric, boiling water and vinegar – was hoping for Mustard Yellow Eggs but only got a few of that colour and the rest turned out very pale yellow.

      Red cabbage, boiling water and vinegar - Robin's Blue eggs.

      Spinach, boiling water and vinegar – very, very pale green eggs.


      Leave eggs soaking overnight in the vegetable infusions.

      Robins Blue Eggs : Cut 1/4 head of red cabbage into chunks and add to 4 cups boiling water. Stir in 2 Tbsp. vinegar. Let cool to room temperature and remove cabbage with a slotted spoon.

      Pale Yellow Eggs: Stir 2 Tbsp. turmeric into 1 cup boiling water; add 2 tsp. white vinegar. Let cool to room temperature and remove the eggs with a slotted spoon.

      Pale Green Eggs: Simmer 3 cups of fresh spinach in 1-1/2 cups water for 20 minutes; strain. Add 2 tsp. white vinegar. Let cool to room temperature and remove with slotted spoon. For darker green colour leave eggs soaking in the solution overnight in the fridge.

      The eggs looked pretty amazing in the white egg crates http://tuliptreesaga.com/egg-crate-medium/  displayed on our Easter table.

      Happy Easter!
