Five Enchanting Ideas for Easter

Dye Eggs Naturally
Follow our gentle methods for dyeing eggs and produce a spectrum of subtle hues. Per 1 quart of water, recommended materials include 4 cups sliced beets for pale pink, 3 tablespoons turmeric for yellow to deep bronze, 4 cups chopped red cabbage for light blue, 2 cups blueberries for a dusky blue-gray, and ¾ cup fresh spinach for pale green. Add each dyeing agent plus 2 tablespoons white vinegar to a separate pot of water, and bring to a boil on the stovetop. Let each pot simmer until the water changes color, 20 to 30 minutes. Remove from heat, drain tinted liquids into separate bowls, and let cool to room temperature. Submerge hard-cooked eggs, experimenting with dipping techniques and steeping times to create a variety of looks. For a marbleized finish, blot eggs with a little olive oil before dyeing.
