When I was about nine years old my great grandmother used to send me out to pick the prettiest leaves and herbs. I would carefully stack them in my palm and run back to show my findings with pride. She would then carefully place each of my findings on separate eggs, press them well so they stuck and wrapped the egg in old nylons. This was our Easter tradition.
It has been at least 15 years since the last time I’ve done this. She used to dye our Easter eggs with onion skins. I’ve decided to try red cabbage and onion skins this time. There are plenty of other natural dyes you can use: turmeric, beets, tea, coffee, berries etc. Naturally, most of these items are things you’d most likely have around the house: old nylons, thread, some form of dye or another, vinegar and eggs.
