    Liesma's Note:

    There are many ways to dye eggs naturally, including herbal, bark, beet, berries, onion skin solutions. This is a boiled method in which the eggs are wrapped up in onions skins and fabric. Although there are various egg-dyes available nowadays, most of Latvian families are still continue the ancestral tradition of coloring Easter eggs with the gifts of nature. By the way, amber comes from the Baltic Sea shores.
