Part of the Easter tradition is dyeing eggs. These eggs are really easy to make using interesting looking leaves, dry onion peels and a clean nylon mesh. This year I only had access to dandelion and Italian parsley leaves.
Wet the leaf, apply to the egg surface ensuring it sticks, cover carefully with the mesh (cut up pantyhose from the dollar store will do), and tie with a twist tie. Insert the eggs in cold water containing the dry onion peels. Once the entire saucepan is full of eggs, set to boil. Usually they boil and colour in about 15 minutes. If a deeper colour is desired, leave to boil a while longer. Once the desired colour is achieved, take eggs out, run under cold water and wash off the leaf remnants.
What is part of your Easter tradition? Have a great weekend, everyone!
