Posted on

It’s that time of the year again! Whether you’re looking to have some Easter fun with the kids, or simply love doing creative experiments, we’ve got just what you’re looking for. In preparation for this Easter, we have collected some of the best recipes for beautiful, unique, naturally dyed Easter eggs. Let’s get started! 

What you’ll need:

    1. A bowl (container) and a spoon for each color you choose
    2. Water and a boiling pot
    3. Vinegar
    4. White eggs*

      *If you don’t have white eggs, boil them in water and vinegar (50:50 ratio) for 10 minutes, then wash them in clean water -- this will whiten them.

  1. Prepare the food ingredients: peel if necessary and cut it up.
  2. Boil the eggs
  3. Heat up the water until it boils, and add the food ingredient.
  4. Boil the food ingredients for 5 to 10 minutes, until you can see the water becoming the desired color.
  5. Pour 7 oz (2 dcl) of the boiled, colored water into a separate container.
  6. Add 2 tbsp vinegar to the container.
  7. Place the eggs inside the container and let sit for the time indicated under the pictures below.
