Natural Easter Egg Dye Recipe:
Why use chemicals to dye Easter eggs, when you can make all natural, homemade, organic food dye yourself? This recipe produces a gorgeous red Easter egg dye that is totally safe, so that you can actually eat the eggs afterwards without a worry.
1. Mix together the water, white vinegar and either beets, cranberries (fresh or frozen), or Red Zinger Tea.
2. Let it sit until you reach the shade of red that you desire.
3. You can either strain out the beets, Red Zinger Tea or cranberries at this point, or you can dye your Easter eggs in the solution without straining it first.
Pantry Tip: You can follow our other recipes to make additional colors such as Yellow Easter Egg Dye or Blue Easter Egg Dye. And then you can make even more colors by mixing the primary Easter egg dyes together… In case you forgot, Red + Yellow = Orange, Yellow + Blue = Green and Blue + Red = Purple
