Do you plan to dye Easter eggs this Spring? It’s always one of our favorite traditions. In this recipe, in addition to instructions for the egg dye, you’ll find a simple, fool-proof way to boil the eggs on the stove top. Or, if you have an air fryer, you can try my other favorite method for cooking the eggs.
For the egg dye, you’ll need water, vinegar and food coloring. The ratio is 1/2 cup water to 1 teaspoon vinegar, and around 10-15 drops of food coloring for intense color. Keep in mind that the vinega is a key element — it activates the food dye so the color adheres to your eggs. The amount of vinegar is also important — too much vinegar can react with the calcium in the egg shell and create bubbles. These bubbles will then prevent the dye from adhering to the eggs. So although the recipe is quite simple, it is important to follow it to dye your Easter eggs!
