Coloring Eggs, Natural Style

Got inspired to make some naturally colored eggs this year. I didn't think I could color brown eggs, but I guess the trick is to let them soak in the color overnight.

Here is the red/purple cabbage trials:

1 small cabbage with enough water to cover, simmered for about 15 minutes.

purple dye already!

I layered the boiled eggs and the cooled cabbage in a large jar.

A very dark blue egg.

Unique prints from the cabbage that layed touching the egg. I guess if you want a solid egg, then don't add the cabbage pieces, just the juice. We think the imprinting is pretty cool. I'll try to get a better pic later.
