A few days ago I wrote about having a “green” Easter over at Your Wild Child. I started phase one–knit the bunnies–on Thursday night, and it looks like they might be ready by tomorrow.
Phase two–use veggies and spices to naturally dye eggs–was this morning. I boiled up beets and cabbage (with vinegar and salt) and mixed up a pot of turmeric soup. The house smelled like sauerkraut. Despite the German heritage on my dad’s side, I hate sauerkraut. Stinky!
But it was all worth it when the kids got to dye their eggs.

I made the mistake of dehydrating cabbage in the house once. Oh Stinky!
The eggs look great. I’m glad the boys had fun.
I’ve never tried using natural dyes before. They’re lovely!
@granola girl– I think anyone dealing in cabbage needs to have an outdoor kitchen.
@m.c. Thanks–they were labor intensive, but fun!
