Natural Blue Easter Eggs

My Daily Randomness

These beautiful blue eggs didn’t get their simple hue from food colouring or boxed dyes; I went au natural. How did I achieve this natural colour? Red cabbage. Believe it or not, when boiled down, red cabbage produces a lovely indigo water that can be used to “dye” eggs. An easy and natural way to colour your eggs this Easter!



  • One large head of red cabbage
  • 5-6 cups of water
  • 1 tbsp baking soda
  • 5 tbsp vinegar
  • Hardboiled eggs

How to make it

Step 1: Quarter one large red cabbage and add it to a large pot with approximately 5-6 cups of water.

Step 2: Bring to a boil for 3-4 minutes, and then return to low and allow to simmer for 30-40 minutes.

Step 3: Remove all pieces of cabbage and discard.

Step 4: Add one tablespoon of baking soda and five tablespoons of vinegar to the water and stir.

Step 5: Place eggs in water, or divide water between 5-6 mugs. The longer the eggs sit in the dye, the deeper their colour.
