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.
Jake the Dog drinking Diet Pepsi while we wait.
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.
