Dyeing Easter Eggs The Natural Way 

Greek Easter countdown!! Speaking of Greek Easter, how about your eggs?? Did you dye your eggs?

I love the way our Easter eggs turned out this year! Better yet, it’s an all natural way to dye your eggs. Check out my recipe below.

All Natural Easter Egg Red Dye Recipe 


  • 12 eggs
  • Red & yellow onion peel (12 onions) You can use 6 red and 6 yellow onions.
  • 3 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 5 cups of water
  • Olive oil for finishing
  • Stainless Steel Pot


  1. In a stainless steel pot add the onion peel, water, and vinegar. Boil for about 20 minutes until onion peels become soft. (You want your water to be deep orange to red color.)
  2. Strain the onion peels and reserve the water. Place water back into the pot, and carefully place your eggs in the pot.
  3. Simmer for about 15 minutes. Test one egg to make sure the color is what you like. If you feel that the egg isn’t the right color,  leave the eggs in the red dye overnight. (You want to keep an eye on the eggs to achieve the right color.)
  4. Remove eggs with a slotted spoon. Dry off and finish with light olive oil.


Make sure to boil your onion peel until you achieve nice orange-red color.

Let your eggs sit overnight in the red dye on the counter covered.

Use the same red dye for another batch of eggs. (See photo below.)
