Contributor Kate Doubler shares her process for dying eggs with onion skins, a project she did with her family. “So much fun, and honestly, some of the most beautiful eggs we have ever created,” she says.
Onion Dyed Eggs
- white eggs (You can either blow out the eggs’ whites and yolks or boil them as-is and get very hard-boiled eggs out of the process.)
- red onion skins (Keep them as big as possible.)
- 2 quarts water
- 2 Tbsp. white vinegar
- rubber bands
Peel the onion, and wrap each egg in onion skin, covering the entire egg. Wrap the covered egg in cheesecloth, and carefully secure it with a rubber band. Lower the wrapped egg into boiling water. Add 2 Tbsp. of vinegar to the water. Boil for 20 minutes. Remove the eggs, and let cool
completely. Unwrap, and enjoy.
