Natural Egg Dying for Ostara

This article is part of Kallan's wonderful Sunday Stew. Please hop on over and read all the different flavors added by each chef. I know that you will love it!

I thought that I would show pictures from the last year that I dyed my eggs naturally. I don't dye any now. My children have all grown out of dying eggs, so now I just paint them. On the last year that I did dye the eggs, I believe it was 2010, I just used items that I had in my home already. It was a last minute decision, I didn't get elaborate with it, but Brev and I had fun. It can be a fun family togetherness thing and bonus, the kids can learn from it.

I just boiled the item that I was using, strained it, added some white vinegar, and let the eggs sit overnight. The only one that I had to leave the item in the water with the egg was the spinach. My favorite of all of these is the red cabbage. I love that beautiful blue color that it made. Word of warning: you cannot eat the eggs, they will taste like what you colored them with.

I've provided some links at the end for more information.
