Striving to live a more natural lifestyle, I decided to try my hand at using red cabbage to dye Easter eggs. The following is the recipe I used~
Naturally Dyed Blue Easter Eggs
In a large pot, boil 4 cups chopped red cabbage in 6 cups of water.
Bring cabbage to a boil and then simmer for a good 30 minutes.
After cooling, strain mixture leaving dye.
Add 1/2 cup – 3/4 cup distilled white vinegar to the dye.
Place eggs in dye and leave for 15-30 minutes depending on how dark you want them.
So fun and beautiful to boot!
*I also found this Natural Egg Dye Kit that uses vegetable extracts that looks promising.
