One of my Easter childhood memories is decorating eggs.
Every year my grandmother used to decorate some eggs to put all over the living room in containers and baskets on her antique furniture. I watched her make those eggs many times… she used to go (and she still does it) into the garden to take some wild flowers and blades of grass. She put flowers around each egg and then she rolled them up in a cotton tissue sealed with twine. She then boiled the eggs in water and vinegar and “puff”!
Once cold, the magic began: the flowers were printed on the eggs in rainbow colors and shapes. This was real magic.
Today I’ll show you another way to decorate Easter eggs, using vegetables. I used red cabbage that, with magic, will make turquoise eggs, but there are lots of variations:
- Carrots will turn them bright yellow
- Yellow onions will turn them brick red
- Blueberries will turn them light purple
- Spinach will turn them green.
You can have fun in many different ways!
In the video I’ll show you how I made my Easter eggs.
Thanks for stopping by my blog today.
See you soon
