  • Updated: April 4, 2012 - 2:38 PM

NATURAL FOOD DYE

Makes 4 to 6 cups.

Note: For a deeper hue, add more of the coloring agent and keep the eggs in the dye longer, even overnight in the refrigerator.

• 2 to 3 tbsp. spice or 4 c. or more chopped fruit or vegetable

• 4 to 6 c. water

• 2 tbsp. white vinegar (per 4 to 6 c. water)

Directions

Combine spice or food with water and vinegar. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 15 minutes. Eggs can be colored (and cooked) in the dye while it is being prepared (make sure the water covers them entirely), or soak hard-cooked eggs in the dye after it is made.
