    duckit's Note:

    This was a recipe of my grandmother and maybe her mothers. My grandmother was born in 1869. These eggs were always a favorite in our easter baskets,as well as those of my children. If you ask, someone in produce will be happy to provide you with the onion skins.

      I saw someone dying eggs with natural ingredients on television and I wanted to try it. Then through a happy coincidence I got my hands on a whole bag full of onion skins my local greengrocer was about to throw out. So I made this but also added a cup of red wine vinegar to the pot. It worked very well and the eggs had a rich red-brown colour. I took one to show the greengrocer afterwards and he couldn't believe the eggs had such an intense colour just from the onions. I recommend this if you dye eggs at Easter as it is much healthier than the dyes sold in the shops.
