at Easter is to wrap them in onion skins and hard boil them.
i will often tuck in a fern or herb sprig in as a resist. i like red onions but other skins colors work. i bundle the eggs covered with skin in a coffee filter ( i have small eggs from some of my hens) or i cut a square of fabric that is then lightly bound at the gatherng point.i used 8 inch squares here.
a little vinegar and i let them cook and color at the same time.
start to collect onions skins ahead of time or make friends
with the produce manager at your local market.
the more skins you wrap the deeper the tones get.
boil as you would for hard boiled eggs.
hard to watch boiling eggs so
i finger painted some already boiled eggs with food coloring the result of which
i got more on my fingers than the egg
