It was Easter weekend and I decided to celebrate it in green: green eggs, green cake, green flowers and green (aka healthy) cooking. I come from a culture where we dye eggs for Easter, mainly red, but other colours too. We use either artificial or natural dyes, but I have always tried to use natural dyes: onion skin (for orange and red eggs) and turmeric (for yellow eggs). This year I decided to colour them green and although it was all trial and error, the results are pretty good. The various shades were completely by accident, using a combination of spinach leaves, green crepe paper (not so natural, I know, but the green leaves didn't really do the job) and onion skin. My kitchen was a real mess, but I love the result. I will definitely try it again.
