|Onion skins produce this lovely shade of brown|
|Red cabbage gives this lovely blue|
|Using beets resulted in a rich brown color|
I didn’t have much luck with the two new methods. The beet-colored eggs turned out a beautiful, rich brown, but as the onion skins give a similar result I wasn’t impressed; I was expecting red. The carrot tops gave just a hint of yellow, nowhere near the vibrant color I saw online in my research. I can only guess that I need a lot more carrot tops (I used about 6 carrots which amounted to about 2 ounces). Talking to friends afterward I found that a possible solution for the beet-dye is to hard boil my eggs before placing in the dye (prepared as described), and not boiling them but just soaking.
