eco dyed easter eggs

>> 3.23.2010

the incredible, edible egg... why mess it up with synthetic colorants! this year i went eco + dyed our eggs naturally. mother nature gave us such beautiful colors to choose from. with the help of this video, here's how i did it:

- hard boiled white free range eggs 
- white vinegar {2 tablespoons for every quart of water}
- egg cartons for drying
- added paper embellishments with tiny dots of glue
- natural egg dyes 

red - beets or cranberry juice produce a dark reddish hue
pink - frozen cherries produce a very light pink
yellow - 3 tablespoons of tumeric produce yellow
green - spinach leaves produce an earthy green
blue - a head of red cabbage creates blue
