Happy Spring!

Can you tell .. Spring is here .. and with Spring .. comes the Easter Bunny and of course Easter Egg hunt ..
Read how to dye your Easter Eggs naturally…

Here’s how to dye Easter eggs with homemade dyes from veggies, fruit, and spices around the kitchen. Lots of fun for kids of all ages!

First you need to determine your colors. Here are some of our favorites:

  • Green: water from boiled spinach
  • Blue: juice from boiled red cabbage (coarsely chopped), crushed frozen blueberries (about 1 pound)
  • Yellow: juice from yellow onion skins (about 3 large handfuls), ground cumin (boiled), ground turmeric (boiled)
  • Purple: grape juice
  • Red/Pink: 2 cups beets (grated), juice from lots of boiled red onion skins (about 6 large handfuls).
