We are all experiencing a little more time at home with the current world situation, so what better way than to get creative in the kitchen! We are here to share a very fun activity with you & you will likely be able to use things you already have at home to make this recipe.
This recipe is for DIY natural Easter Eggs. There are absolutely no artificial food colorings in this recipe. YAY! Go ahead, do a little dance. We won't tell. We recommend having sometime down on the table (paper, cardboard, etc.) to prevent some of these ingredients from staining your things. We also suggest keeping the eggs in the dye overnight so that the colors turn out very bright and fun!
DIY Natural Easter Eggs
- 6 cups water
- 6 T white vinegar
- 2 T Anthony's Goods Turmeric Powder
- 2 T chili powder
- 1/2 cup blueberry juice
- 2 T Anthony's Goods Beet Juice Powder
- 2 T Anthony's Goods Activated Charcoal Powder
- 3 T Anthony's Goods Hibiscus Flowers
- Get 6 jars or other containers out for the dye (we like using mason jars).
- Boil the water over the stove.
- Once the water is boiling, remove it from the heat and add about 1 cup of the boiling water to each jar.
- Add 1 T of vinegar to each jar.
- Next, add each of the dye ingredients to a separate jar: turmeric, chili powder, blueberry juice, beet juice powder, charcoal, and hibiscus.
- Stir each jar with it's own spoon and allow the mixture to cool completely.
- While the dye mixtures cool, boil some eggs (you will want to use hard boiled eggs for this recipe so the eggs do not break).
- Once the dye mixture is cool and the eggs are hard boiled, place 1-2 eggs into each color.
- Allow the eggs to sit in the dye for at least an hour, the colors tend to depend the longer you leave them in the dye. We found that if you leave the eggs in the dye overnight they turn out the best!
- Once the eggs are done, remove them from the dye and allow them to dry.
- Once dry, wipe the eggs with a paper towel.
Total time: overnight + 45 minutes
