How To Dye Eggs Using Onion Skins | Real Food RN

We celebrate every holiday to the fullest in our house and especially like to celebrate by covering every part of the house with decorations. But, even though it is tempting, we don’t like to buy all the cute trinkets in the dollar section at Target to decorate our house with. No thank you Made in China chemicals! Instead we like to make our own. This year we decided to make the onion eggs because the kids wanted to learn how to dye eggs using onion skins. So much fun, and honestly some of the most beautiful eggs we have ever created.

How To Dye Eggs Using Onion Skins

Materials:

  • white eggs (you can either blow the insides out of the eggs out using this technique, or boil them as-is and get very hard-boiled eggs out of the process)
  • red onion skins (try to keep them as big as possible)
  • rubber-bands
  • cheesecloth — where to find
  • 1 quart water
  • 2 Tbsp vinegar — we use this kind

Directions:

  • Peel onion and place the skins in a pile
  • Wrap each egg in an onion skin, covering the entire egg
  • Wrap egg and onion skin with cheesecloth and secure it with a rubber-band
  • Bring water to a boil and lower the wrapped egg into the water. Add 2 tablespoons of vinegar to the water
  • Boil for 20 minutes
  • Remove eggs and let cool completely
  • Unwrap and enjoy
