Naturally Dyed Easter Eggs

Sunday, March 19, 2017
Natural coloring has always been how I make mine. Growing up I remember mom always using beet juice. Now I have a fabulous list of tried and true ways to color those Easter eggs with natural dye. Healthier and safe to eat.

Easter eggs crackled with natural dyes. Dying Easter eggs with plant colors and natural foods are much healthier for the hard boiled eggs . Eating them are healthy and pretty to look at.

I have always loved how these eggs look when you crack the shells and dye them. They especially look awesome made into deviled eggs. Oh course you can make them without using food coloring. Try using beet juice and other natural ingredients to dye them with as well.

Here are some natural dye suggestions if you prefer to not use food coloring agents: All you do is put each natural kind of coloring into boiling water the longer you steep the eggs the stronger the colors. Sometimes you have to boil the actual vegetables first to release the colors as I indicated below.
Just boil some eggs and use these suggestions below for coloring your eggs naturally.

Note: All of these take 2 cups of boiling water adjust more or less ingredients for darker colors and add 2 teaspoons of vinegar (if some are different I added below)
