NATURAL DYED EASTER EGGS INSTRUCTIONS

Two different methods:   a cold method and a hot method.

The cold method was employed for most of the pictured eggs. Just mix the ingredients in a non-staining bowl (ie: glass is great) and add hard boiled eggs. Let them sit until the desired color is achieved.

For the hot method, add the ingredients and raw eggs to a stainless steel pan, brought the mixture to a boil, reduced the heat and let simmer for 15 minutes. Remove from heat and let sit until eggs achieve the desired color.

NOTE: The eggs may take on the flavor of the coloring agent.
