Eieiei, what do I see there? - Dyeing eggs in the asper mill
If you like to hide colored eggs at Easter, you don't have to resort to artificial egg dyes for this. Also vegetable products are herforragend suitable for coloring. This year we have tried 3 different colors: Yellow, purple and moss green. How it works, we show you here:
Dissolve 3EL vinegar essence and 2 tbsp barley grass powder in 750ml cold water.
Bring the mixture to a boil. Pierce the bottom of the eggs with a small knife or egg strainer and carefully add them to the boiling water.
Boil the eggs in the broth for 10 minutes and then remove from the heat.
For a rich color, let the eggs sit in the broth overnight, then drain and rinse with cold water. Leave to dry and ready
For the other colors, proceed exactly as for the green eggs, but wear gloves, as both turmeric and the blueberry powder will dye your hands as well.
Tip: do not use fresh eggs. After 1-2 weeks after laying, the air bubble in the eggs is larger and the eggs do not burst so quickly when cooking.
Have fun making it and happy Easter, wishes the team of the Aspermühle. :)
