In our family we used to dye eggs with onion skins. It is very simple. This year I modified the recipe a little.
So, you will need:
- onion skins. I start recollect it in Christmass, so for the Easter I have a bag full of onion skins. The onion I use is the common one.
- Pieces of laces.
- Vinegar (optional)
- Stainless steel Saucepan
|The onion for the dye.|
|Place the onion skins in a stainless steel saucepan add water. |
Bring to boil, cover and simmer about 30 min.
|Leave it for the night. You can boil it again to reduce water |
so the dye will be more concentrated.
|Wash eggs with a hot water and put it for a while in a vinegar |
and water solution.
|Tie different shape lace to recerve it from dye.|
|To make the decoration a little bit finer you can stich the lace. |
It will take more time but the result is better.
|Add the onion dye and cook the eggs as you usually do.|
|Finaly remove eggs with a spoon and cold it on a paper towel.|
This is result of boiling the eggs about 4-5 min.
