Sretan Uskrs! / Happy Easter!
|Easter eggs dyed with onion shell|
Već par godina bojam Uskršnja jaja ljuskom od kapule,
recimo da sam odustala od kupovnih boja...
I dye Easter eggs with onion shell couple of years now,
- let's just say that I had quit on buying colors -
it is easier, healthier and keeps amazing me with variety of shades!
It is quite simple, really, when you are about to boil some eggs,
just add onion shells in water,
boil for 10 minutes and you will have eggs colored in nice shade of brown.
The more onion shells you use, the color gets more intense!
And if you don't want your egg to be plain -
place some interesting leaves, like parsley,
on egg's surface and cover it with small piece of pantyhose
(just enough to embrace the egg)
and secure the cover with few handstitches,
you will get some pretty interesting images!
When you boil the eggs in water full of onion shells,
eggs will not get colored under the leaves.
As for a shine, sprinkle few drops of cooking oil on eggs when they cool off,
rub it with your fingers
and your Easter eggs will be sparkling!
I svake godine me iznova iznenadi kako svako jaje ispadne drukčije!
And I get surprised every year to see that each egg turn out differently!
Lijepo se zabavite!
Have a great time coloring!
