Blue Natural Egg Dye & Egg Coloring
Place cabbage in a medium bowl. Pour boiling water over the cabbage and let steep for at least 30 minutes and up to 2 hours to extract the color.Advertisement
Strain the dyeing liquid from the cabbage into another medium bowl. Stir in vinegar; add eggs. Refrigerate the eggs in the dye for at least 4 hours or up to 1 day. Longer soaking will give a more vivid color, but limit soak time to 24 hours.
Remove the eggs from the dye with a slotted spoon. Let dry on a wire rack. If you plan to eat the eggs, refrigerate for up to 1 week.
Make Ahead Tip: Refrigerate hard-boiled eggs for up to 1 week.
To hard-boil, place eggs in a single layer in a saucepan; cover with 1 inch of water. Bring just to a simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low and cook at the barest simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat, immediately pour out hot water and cover the eggs with ice-cold water. Let stand in the water until cool.
