Colorful Easter eggs with natural dyes


White vinegar
Purple: grape juice or red wine
Blue: canned blueberries
Pink: canned beet juice or cranberry juice
Brown: strong coffee
Yellow: strong green tea
Orange: orange soda


Pour dye mixture into bowl or jar that will allow dye to completely cover egg.

Add 1 to 2 teaspoons white vinegar.

Add boiled egg that has been cooled.

Let eggs remain in dye in refrigerator until desired color.

Deeper colors will require eggs to soak in dye longer.

Dry dyed eggs in an empty egg carton in the refrigerator.

Natural dyed eggs will not be glossy. Once eggs have dried, give eggs a shiny sheen by rubbing a small amount of vegetable oil on egg.

For food safety reasons, eggs should not be eaten if they have been out of refrigeration for over 2 hours.
