How to make naturally dyed Easter eggs

Dyeing eggs with natural ingredients like beets, turmeric, and tea is both craft and chemistry. The amount of materials, the length of time eggs are exposed to the dyes, the amount of dips, the original egg color, and other factors can determine how saturated your eggs become. Apartment Therapy’s Kitchn team also tested a variety of approaches, and shared their recipes and lots of useful tips here: Naturally Dyed Easter Eggs. Ingredients include:

• 1 cup chopped purple cabbage = blue on white eggs, green on brown eggs
• 1 cup red onion skins = lavender or red eggs
• 1 cup yellow onion skins = orange on white eggs, rusty red on brown eggs
• 1 cup shredded beets = pink on white eggs, maroon on brown eggs
• 2 tablespoons ground turmeric = yellow eggs
• 1 bag Red Zinger tea = lavender eggs
