Dye eggs naturally, using everyday ingredients from your pantry and refrigerator.

  • 2 Cups Roughly Chopped Raw Beets (For Pink/Red)
  • 2 Cups Blueberries Crushed (For Blue/Purple)
  • 1 Teaspoon Ground Turmeric (For Yellow/Gold)
  • 1 Teaspoon Distilled White Vinegar
  • Hard Boiled Eggs
  1. Place your choice of coloring ingredients (beets, blueberries or turmeric) into small pot with 2 cups water and bring to boil. Cover, reduce heat to a medium-low and simmer 2 minutes. Strain through fine mesh sieve. Throw away any solids and then stir in vinegar. Set aside to let cool until room temperature.
  2. To color eggs, submerge in dye, turning often for even coating, until desired color is reached. For more colors, dye eggs first in one color, then wipe dry and dye in a second color.
  3. Try experimenting with other colorful ingredients such as hibiscus tea, red cabbage, coffee or paprika.
  4. "Work With What You Got!"
