Pretty!  Do you add vinegar to the onion skin water?

These are gorgeous!  Easter isn't really celebrated in our household, but I certainly plan to make these eggs.  Thanks for posting!

giantsquid, you said you eat the eggs?  Does that mean you start with raw eggs and they get hardboiled during the process?  It would be great to not have to blow out the eggs.  I've never had a good experience doing that... I usually just manage to blow out my ears! Roll Eyes

Make sure ya poke/break the yolk before ya blow. Cheesy  Poke/break it and give it a good shake (scramble it in the shell, lol) and then it'll be much easier to blow out.

Yeah, when I make the ones wrapped in onion skins I just boil them for however long you would to make hard boiled eggs.  For the dyed ones with leaves or flowers we would make the dye first by boiling the onion skins, I don't remember for how long, and then hard boil the eggs wrapped in pantyhose and flowers in the dye.  Making the dye in advance may not be necessary but it probably makes the eggs a darker brown.

I get tons of brown eggs from my SIL's farm, but I always buy white ones for easter because I didn't think the brown would dye very well.

How wrong I was!  Thanks for posting this!  Your eggs are gorgeous.

If you're going to eat the eggs, do you have to use non toxic plants only?  Or does the egg shell protect the egg?
