Coloring Easter Eggs Naturally With Red Cabbage

There are so many foods and spices that you can use to naturally dye eggs but I was going for a simple and well, natural process.


– large head red cabbage – dozen hard boiled eggs – water – white vinegar – pinch baking soda (optional)

making natural egg dye

Make the hard boiled eggs. While the eggs are cooking, prepare the red cabbage by chopping it up and putting it in a large pot with water.

Bring the water to a boil and let it simmer for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, I took it off the stove and let it cool.

I added white vinegar to the strained liquid. I filled two glasses with dye, and I was ready to color my Easter eggs.

In using red cabbage, I found that it takes a while for the eggs to turn color.
