I’m so excited to share with you an old-school technique for naturally dyed Greek Easter eggs, using onion peels, that actually give you the most vibrant, deep, gorgeous red color ever! More importantly, this plant-based dye is not harmful to the environment, to you, or anyone sitting around your breakfast table. Red food dye is TOXIC and made from chemicals that are seriously harmful so, I was elated to try the old traditional way that my fellow Orthodox community has been dying eggs with long before store-bought food dye was a thing.
2.5 liters of filtered water
10 large yellow onion skins (ask your local grocery store if you can collect the peels)
