Naturally Dyed Easter Eggs


I was determined to dye eggs this year but the idea of buying those kits at the grocery store wasn't really inspiring.  Not to mention now that I have a child, I worry worry worry about ingredients and chemicals and how they affect my family (although I grew up using those kits and I turned out fine, right?).

I used FarmMade's link and followed their recipe to dye these eggs.  The three with stripes were tied with butcher string.  The blue egg was dyed using red wine.  The yellow one used curry powder.  The orangish ones used chili powder.  I found out that kale does NOT produce any color, and brown eggs just do not take on the color as vibrantly as the white eggs.
