Eggs Dyed with Onions (skins)

(mydeliciousmeals.com)
An easy recipe for Easter eggs dyed naturally using onion peels. I love this recipe because it requires minimum attention and the result is a beautiful red-colored, not overcooked egg. I usually use brown eggs for this recipe and buy a big bag of yellow onions from Costco before making these, not to save onion skins in advance.
Eggs Dyed with Onions (skins)

Ingredients

  • 8 eggs (room temperature)
  • 1/2 tablespoon salt
  • onions (I used outer skins of 7 large yellow onions)
  • olive oil (to make eggs look shiny)

eggs
Prep time:

Cook time:

Total time:
40 minutes
Yield: 8 eggs | Prep time: 30 minutes | Cook time: 10 minutes | Total time: 40 minutes

Instructions

1. Remove eggs from refrigerator, they need to come to room temperature to prevent cracking.
2. Place onion skins to a medium pot (I had a 2.5-Quart pot, the skins took about 1/3 of the pot).

3. Add 6 cups of boiling water (I use an electric kettle to boil water). Сover with a lid and let stand for 2 hours.

4. Add room temperature eggs and salt to the pot with the onion skins. Bring to a boil, immediately turn off the heat and cover the pot with a lid and a towel. Let stand until the water cools down.

5. Remove eggs from the pot. To make eggs look shiny, add a few drops of oil to a paper towel, then rub it all over each egg.
