Painted Easter eggs are a beautiful tradition that has been honored by many generations. But there will always be people for whom food and chemistry are not compatible - for them my recipe. I will tell you how to dye eggs with turmeric, onion peel, gauze and dill. Believe me, if you approach the process with love, then no beautiful pisch from pvc can be compared with eggs painted using natural materials.
In a pharmacy, buy a piece of gauze, this fabric, which is rare in structure of fibers, leaves a pleasant texture and uneven cells on the shell. You will also need a bunch of fresh dill, ground turmeric and onion peel, which I advise you to start storing in advance. Sometimes, when you forget to create a reserve, you have to peel the bow, and it dries quickly without clothes.

How to color eggs for Easter with turmeric, onion husk, gauze and dill?
We put a dozen eggs in a bowl of warm water (30-36 ° C), take the usual laundry soap and carefully wash the shell. If you rub it well, then at the same time the prints with the indication of the grade will also be washed off. Then rinse the testicles with clean water, and you can begin to decorate.
Take a bunch of dill, cut off the topmost branches. I do not know what they are called correctly, maybe the leaves, although they are not similar. In general, the stems are not needed, they are stiff and will not stick to the shell.
In small portions, put dill branches in boiling water for 15-20 seconds, then glue randomly on the shell.
Scalp dill is piled up, parsed with a toothpick, and you can specify almost any dill pattern.
Cut the pieces of gauze that are suitable in size, carefully place the egg in the dill in the center, tie it tightly.
Prepare a decoction of husk in advance - water 1.5 liters, washed husk, cook for 30 minutes, cool. The eggs in gauze are placed in a cold broth. Be careful, if you put it in hot water, then all the work will be in vain - they will crack.
We put it on the stove, bring it to a boil, cook for 10 minutes and keep it in the pan a little longer so that we can drink more color.
We take out the eggs, put in a bowl of cold water, cool right in the package.
Remove gauze, rinse under the tap with cold water, rinse off the greens.
Here is a pattern. In principle, this can be stopped, but it can be continued, especially if the color of the shell turned out to be saturated with brown tones.
So, in a bowl with hot water we mix ground turmeric, put boiled eggs, leave for 20-30 minutes, you can leave it overnight.
We got very nice painted Easter eggs to make the picture seem brighter, grease the shell with a small amount of vegetable or olive oil.
Easter eggs painted with turmeric, onion peel, gauze and dill are ready. Cook with pleasure, a bright holiday for you!
