• DIY: Dying Eggs Naturally


    I recently came across Jenna Park's story on Steller on how to dye eggs using natural colors and was instantly inspired to make my own! I ended up using blackberries for bluish purple, beets for reddish pink, and turmeric for yellow. I originally wanted to make green with spinach but it didn't quite work out. I read that you need to use frozen spinach and baking powder to make it work. I ended up using turmeric instead.

    You will need:
    • White Eggs
    • 2 Cups Blackberries
    • 2 Beets
    • 1/4 Cup Turmeric
    • Plastic Cups
    • White Vinegar
    • Spoon
    • Napkins
    Step 1: Peel and grade two beets
    Step 2: Blend the blackberries

    Step 3: Add the two graded beets to 4 cups boiling water, add 1/4 cup turmeric to 4 cups boiling water, and add 2 cups blackberries to 4 cups boiling water.
    Step 4: Boil for 15 minutes


    Step 5: Boil eggs for 12 minutes and then let them cool before adding them to dye
    Step 6: Add 1/4 teaspoon of white vinegar to plastic cups

    Step 7: Add strained beets, blackberries, and turmeric to the plastic cups
    Step 8: Add eggs to cups
    Step 9: Let the eggs sit in cups overnight


    Step 10: In the morning dry your eggs off with a paper towel and now you have some pretty naturally dyed eggs!
