Homemade Easter Egg Dye

This is a great alternative to your store bought egg dye. Not only is less expensive, but typically it produces much more vibrant Easter eggs. Thank you MommyMakes for the great recipe.
Ingredients:
  • 10 drops food coloring (per color)
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar  (per color)
  • 1/2 cup boiling water  (per color)

Directions:
  1. For each dye bath combine 1/2 cup boiling water with 1 tsp vinegar and 10 drops of food coloring in a bowl. Start with 5 drops red and 5 drops yellow, for orange for example, or 6 drops blue and 4 drops green for turquoise.
  2. Dip hard-cooked eggs in dye bath for 3-5 minutes, extend time for richer color. Try using tongs to dip only half an egg in one color, then dip other half in a different color.
  3. Use tongs or a slotted spoon to remove eggs and place on wax paper to dry, blot any excess with a paper towel.
  4. If you plan to eat your Easter eggs, never leave them unrefrigerated at any point for more than 2 hours.
