A description of how to colour eggs for Easter.


  • eggs to paint
  • various flowers, onion skin
(see measure conversions for more information on quantites)


  1. Take as many eggs as you require and enough pieces of cloth to wrap each egg separately.
  2. The cloth is used to hold various dying agents next to the eggs so that they will colour when they are boiled.
  3. For example, take a piece of cloth and lay a thick layer of onion skin on it.
  4. Then lay on this a few flower heads or leaves.
  5. Wrap or stitch the egg in this and then boil for 10 minutes.
  6. The onion skin should colour the egg brown and the flowers will appear as a pale pattern.
  7. Coffee and parsley can also be used as dyes.
  8. Serve the eggs for Easter Sunday breakfast.
