An Eco-friendly Way To Colour Your Easter EggsDon’t be shy to try new and better ways to colour your Easter eggs. It’s easier than you think. To get an even colour we suggest you boil eggs in the dye. The more ingredient you use, the richer your dye will be.

Pink Eggs:
4 cups chopped red beets, 2 tbsp vinegar, 1 tsp salt, 1 quart water

Combine all ingredients. After boiling them simmer uncovered for 30 minutes. Strain the beets and fill a saucepan with the liquid. Add raw eggs and bring back to a boil. Cook for 12 minutes and turn off the heat and leave the eggs for 20 minutes. If you want a more even colour stir occasionally.

Yellow Eggs:
4 tbsp ground turmeric, 2 tbsp vinegar, 1 tsp salt, 1 quart water

Combine all ingredients. After boiling them simmer uncovered for 30 minutes. Once the solution cooled down, dip hard boiled eggs and leave it in the fridge overnight if you wish a darker shade.

Green Eggs:
6 cups chopped spinach, 1 tbsp turmeric, 2 tbsp vinegar, 1 tsp salt, 1 quart water

Combine all ingredients. After boiling them simmer uncovered for 30 minutes. Strain the spinach and leave the solution to cool down. Once it’s cool enough dip hard boiled eggs into the solution and let them sit in the fridge overnight if you wish a darker shade.
