Beautiful Naturally Dyed Easter Eggs

Happy Easter from tameramowry.com

Hi guys! Easter is coming up this weekend, I am so excited to spend time with my family, and carry on my favorite traditions with my kids like an Easter egg hunt in the back yard, and dying Easter eggs! When someone told me recently that you can dye eggs naturally without traditional store-bought food coloring, I was really intrigued and decided that I had to try it. It turns out that it is pretty easy to dye eggs at home using different foods, and the results are absolutely gorgeous! So beautiful in fact, that I had to share with you all how I did it!

START by hard boiling a dozen white eggs and set them aside so that they cool to room temperature. Once your dye is ready, place each egg into the jar of dye you have prepared, and allow to sit for one hour. You can pull your eggs out periodically to check the coloring … If you want your eggs to be more vibrant, then leave them in the jars a little longer! You will notice that some colors take faster than others. The light green dye (done with spinach) takes the longest to color an egg, so I recommend leaving the eggs in the dye overnight to get that nice light green color!

FOR THE DYE:

Yellow: 2 tablespoons of turmeric, combined in a saucepan with 2 cups of water and a tablespoon of sea salt. Bring to a boil for ten minutes and pour the liquid into a jar with 1 tablespoon of white vinegar.

Blue: 2 cups of frozen wild blueberries, combined in a saucepan with 2 cups of water and a tablespoon of sea salt. Bring to a boil for ten minutes and then strain the liquid into a jar with 1 tablespoon of white vinegar.

Mocha / Light Brown: 2 cups of strong coffee placed in a jar with a tablespoon of sea salt and 1 tablespoon of white vinegar.

Pink: 2 cups of chopped beets, combined in a saucepan with 2 cups of water and a tablespoon of sea salt. Bring to a boil for ten minutes and then strain the liquid into a jar with 1 tablespoon of white vinegar.

Purple: 2 cups of red wine placed in a jar with a tablespoon of sea salt and 1 tablespoon of white vinegar. Shake well to dissolve the salt.

Light Green: 2 cups of chopped spinach, combined in a saucepan with 1.5 cups of water and a tablespoon of sea salt. Bring to a boil for ten minutes and then strain the liquid into a jar with 1 tablespoon of white vinegar.

Hope you all have an amazing Easter!

When you try to get little ones to look at the camera… Either you end up looking away or they do. Lol.

Absolutely loved celebrating Easter with everyone. We went to church and then it was off to an Easter egg hunt. Aden found so many! We’ll have to hide them better next year. ;)

How was your Easter Sunday?
