Coloring Easter eggs is a fun experience for children but it doesn't need to be saturated in artificial dyes or chemicals. So we did some research and found the best ingredients for making your own organic egg dyes. Happy Easter! Instructions: First, hard boil however many eggs you wish to decorate and add one to two tablespoons of white vinegar. Next, prepare the dyes on the stove top using a pan. Use at least two cups of water and one teaspoon of vinegar plus the organic dye ingredients. Use 3 to 4 teaspoons of the spice ingredients and 3 to 4 cups of the whole fruit or vegetable ingredients. Boil the dye for at least five minutes, but remember that the longer you boil, the deeper the hue of the dye. Crush the ingredients in the pan to release the pigments, and strain. Note: It's best to use the dyes when they are hot. Remember: the longer you soak the eggs in the dyes, the better the colors will turn out. Be patient and enjoy! Source: Articles on e-how.com.
