Coloring Easter Eggs - Naturally

Hi Everyone!

It is almost Easter! Time to color your Easter-Eggs!
How about doing it naturally, instead of using the store-bought coloring?

Use the following ingredients to get you started:

For best results, use white eggs only!

Use Red Beets or Red Onions to make beautiful red-tones.
Use Red Cabbage to have a blue to violet range of colors.
Use Black Tea to turn the eggs golden-brown to brown
Use Spinach and parsley to turn them green.

Follow these simple steps:

Boil the ingredient of your choice together with a teaspoon of white vinegar and an amble amount of water ( your amount of water depends on how many eggs you are coloring; Please keep an close eye on this part of the process and add water as needed!) for at least 1/2 hour, depending on desired darkness and richness of color.

Next add the eggs, make sure they are emerged completely, and boil them until they are hard.

Careful not to stain your clothing, when you are removing them to cool!

If you are looking for intensive, strong colors, rub the eggs before emerging them, with a small amount of white vinegar!

Have a wonderful time!
