To Make Yellow Eggs:
Add 4 tablespoons of Turmeric Spice to a litre of water. Add 2 tablespoons of white vinegar and bring to a boil and simmer for 30 minutes uncovered. Once the liquid has cooled add the hard-boiled eggs. Depending on how dark of hue you would like determines how long you should leave the eggs in the solution. 30 minutes gives you a soft yellow and overnight will develop into a bold yellow.

To Make Blue-toned Eggs:
Add one red cabbage chopped to a litre of water. Add 2 tablespoons of white vinegar and bring to a boil and simmer for 30 minutes uncovered. Once the liquid has cooled add the hard-boiled eggs. Depending on how dark of hue you would like determines how long you should leave the eggs in the solution. 30 minutes gives you a soft blue and overnight will develop into a bold blue/turquoise.

To Make Pink-toned Eggs:
Add chopped beets to a litre of water. Add 2 tablespoons of white vinegar and bring to a boil and simmer for 30 minutes uncovered. Once the liquid has cooled add the hard-boiled eggs. Depending on how dark of hue you would like determines how long you should leave the eggs in the solution. 30 minutes gives you a soft pink and overnight will develop into a bold pink – brown shade.

Have fun & Happy Easter everyone!
