Click ahead for the recipe...

Plant and Spice based Egg Dye


2 dozen eggs
2 orange peels
1 beet
2 cups red cabbage, chopped
1/4 lb turmeric root, grated
2 cups spinach, chopped
10 tsp vinegar
Other ingredients for dyes: blackberries, concord grapes, pomegranate, strong coffee or espresso, blood oranges, cherries, paprika, portobella mushrooms.

Hard boil the eggs and let them cool. For each color, boil 3 cups of water, 2 tsp vinegar and one of the vegetable ingredients for 30 minutes.
The orange peels create a pale yellow-orange, beets create pink, turmeric root a deeper yellow, spinach makes a spring green, and red cabbage makes blue.
