Produce Scraps? No Problem!

Are you socially distancing and looking for something fun to do with your produce scraps!? Before you toss or compost, here is a fun project and/or experiment to do at home with your family. 

Here’s how to naturally dye white eggs: 

  • 1 Cup Yellow Onion Skins + 1 Cup of Hot Water = Orange 
  • 1 Cup Red Onion Skins + 1 Cup of Hot Water = Lavender or Red 
  • 1 Cup Purple Cabbage (chopped) + 1 Cup of Hot Water = Blue 
  • 1 Cup Beets (shredded) + 1 Cup of Hot Water = Pink 

And you can experiment too – try brown eggs, a Tablespoon of white vinegar included with your dye liquid, different teas or spices for more colors.

Have fun!
