Household items you find in the fridge and pantry produce earthy-coloured (and edible!) beautiful Easter decorations. This is a fun and easy way to naturally colour hard-cooked eggs for your family. Here’s how:
Things You'll Need
- Frozen berries (blueberries, raspberries)
- Ground turmeric
- Black coffee or tea
Place blueberries, raspberries, turmeric and coffee grinds in separate medium saucepans.
Add 2 cups (500 mL) water and 1 tbsp (15 mL) vinegar to each saucepan.
Add 6 eggs to each saucepan.
Set over high heat and bring to boil.
Reduce heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes.
Remove eggs from each saucepan. Strain and discard solids but reserve coloured liquids.
Cool slightly before placing eggs back into liquids for 30 minutes or until desired level of colour intensity is achieved.
For a glossy look, rub with a bit of cooking oil once the eggs are dry. Naturally-coloured hard-cooked eggs make great snacks in lunches, or as colourful appetizers at Easter brunch!
