I decided this past weekend to dye Easter eggs. I don't think I have dyed eggs in at least 15 years, but wow, it's crazy how that vinegar smell takes you right back. To make things more interesting, I searched for natural dye recipes and tried a few different ideas for getting color. This article from Better Homes & Gardens was helpful. This one is good too.
We used turmeric to get yellow. The very light pink came from beets and the orange came from red onion skins (which were supposed to result in jade green - are you kidding me!?).
It was a combination of exciting (yellow) and lame (pink) but regardless, pretty fun. Next year I am determined to get the whole rainbow through everyday foods and spices.
And in the meantime, those hard-boiled eggs are not going to waste. I had no idea how much I loved deviled eggs. Paul's idea to throw little jalapeno pieces into the yolk mix instead of relish was genius.
