  • Author: Jennifer Regan / Bamboo Core Fitness

Description

These naturally dyed, red-colored Easter eggs are much more beautiful than the neon-colored eggs created with traditional Easter egg coloring kits.


Ingredients

  • 1-2 beets (3/4 pound) (If you do not have beets, you may also use cranberries/cranberry juice, pomegranate juice, raspberries, and/or rose hips.)
  • 3-4 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sea salt
  • Hard-boiled, white eggs

Instructions

  1. Roughly chop beets.
  2. Place beets in a saucepan and combine with water, vinegar, and salt.
  3. Bring water to a boil, then cover and simmer for 30 minutes or until desired color is reached.
  4. Strain beets with slotted spoon, reserving the liquid for dyeing.
  5. Remove the pan from the heat.
  6. Add eggs to dye.
  7. Leave eggs in dye until they reach the desired color.
  8. Remove eggs and place on a drying rack or an upside down egg carton.
  9. For a slight shine, coat eggs in coconut oil.
