An alternative to purchasing an egg coloring kit is to create your own, straight from the kitchen cupboards. Although the color is not as bright, it is an option for anyone wanting to color eggs organically.
Most eggs must be left in natural dye for hours to develop the color you desire. Do not eat these eggs. Boil extra eggs specifically for eating and refrigerate those eggs immediately. Refer to the chart below for what natural product to use in order to get your desired color. In most cases it is necessary to boil the natural product in a small amount of water to produce the dye you need. Strain the dye mixture of all solids and allow the water to cool. Add two to three teaspoons of white vinegar per cup of dye. Submerge the eggs into the dye and allow to set until the desired color is reached. Other products, such as the grape juice or canned blueberries, etc can be used just as they are for the dye. Just place the eggs into them directly.
