Dyeing Easter Eggs -- Naturally

Try these...simmer the chopped items gently for 10-12 minutes, drain (capture the water), then submerge your boiled eggs in the colored water. .

(Quilters use a similar process when tea-dyeing fabrics for a more vintage look.)

Use the parboiled veggies for other dishes.



This step-by-step guide is slightly more complicated, but makes some good points:

*Add a little vinegar to the solution, to help set the dye. (Salt helps, too.)

Steeping your eggs in the solution, even as long as overnight, will give you richer colors.

Zzzzzzzz...

After four hours at Tuesday Morning's checkout line today, I can honestly relate. Okay, maybe a nap AND a cookie.
