1/2 Photos of German Easter Eggs (Ostereier)
Thought I would share this simple, old-fashioned method for beautiful bright and shiny colored Easter eggs. My mother and German Oma made Easter Eggs this way, ever since I can remember. The eggs can be dyed with store-bought dyes or by boiling the eggs with natural substances such as onion skin, tea, beetroot juice, spinach, nettle roots and leaves, alder or oak bark. Vinegar added to the water makes the colors brighter, and rubbing with either bacon fat or salad oil produces a shine.
