Naturally Dyed Easter Eggs

Purple cabbage

Thanks for watching this segment! Here’s a recap of how to dye Easter eggs with natural dye:

  • Use 1 cup chopped vegetables to 3 cups water. I used beets, purple cabbage, onion, and 1.5 tsp turmeric. You could also try carrots, saffron, coffee, spinach, yellow beets, etc.
  • Boil for 15-20 minutes. 
  • Strain vegetables and pour dye into a plastic container.
  • Add 1 tsp or capful of white vinegar. This will help the color adhere to the egg.
  • Add rubber bands (be gentle) for some nice lines and abstract patterns.
  • Soak hardboiled eggs for at least six hours; eggs will get darker over time. Check them progressively and take them out when they are a color you like.
