Easter Egg BasketDirections

  1. Combine two cups water and dye materials in individual saucepans. Bring to a boil, and then reduce the heat and simmer for 15 minutes to one hour. The longer the dye material is simmered, the darker the dye will become.

  2. Remove from heat and strain out the liquid through a fine mesh strainer. Cool to room temperature, and stir in vinegar.

  3. Place hard-boiled eggs into glass containers and soak until your desired color is reached. For the most vibrant colors, place the container in refrigerator for up to 12 hours.

From all of us here on the Nature Island, we hope you and your loved ones have a happy holiday celebration!
