Naturally Dyed Easter Eggs Pin for Later
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)
Beet Juice straight
Raspberry Juice straight
Instant Coffee with boiling water
Cranberry Juice straight
Ground Turmeric Boiled
Red Cabbage Boiled (1/4 head boiled in 4 cups water with 1 teaspoon vinegar added)
Canned Blueberries using the juice and some boiling water
Grape Juice Straight
Chili Powder in Boiling water
Boiled Spinach Leaves
Boiled Carrots with Paprika
Cabernet Wine straight
Pomegranate Juice straight
Canned Cherries juice straight
Yellow Apple Peels 2 cup water Boiled some chopped fennel tops and 2 teaspoons vinegar
Black Tea Boiled
Red Onion Skins Boiled in 2 cups water with 3 teaspoons vinegar
Paprika use 2 tablespoons in 1 cup Boiled water 2 teaspoons white vinegar
I am sure there are many more. These are the ones I use to get blues, orange, brown, yellow, reds and purples.
