We don't eat a lot of hard-boiled eggs around here. I suppose we should, considering how easy it would be to use up the dozens of eggs our chickens lay each week. But, anyway...
We do love to dye boiled eggs for Easter. Last week we tried these directions for dyeing with natural ingredients. We used purple grape juice, paprika, and green tea. I forgot we had spinach to use for green, or I would have tried that, too.
The green tea gave the most even color of the three. The grape juice-dyed eggs came out bumpy and speckled, as though the acid in the juice ate away some of the shell. Which leads us to our next project... Disappearing egg shells.
We're planning to do this Wednesday, so I'll let you know how it goes. If you decide to try it, leave me a comment!
