Dyed Blueberry Easter Eggs

This easy to make blueberry dye is the perfect way to get beautiful looking Easter Eggs and they are super fun to make!

Supplies List

  • 2 cups Klaassen Farms frozen blueberries
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 teaspoons white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch (optional)
  • 1 dozen large white eggs

Instructions

  • Bring 2 cups of water and blueberries to a boil on medium to high in a pot for 10 minutes
  • Strain out blueberries and set blueberries aside for other baking (great for pancakes)
  • Add 2 teaspoons of white vinegar to dye mixture and set aside to cool for 20-30 minutes
  • While mixture is cooling place 1 dozen eggs in 1 inch of cold water in a large pot
  • Hard boil eggs for 10 minutes on high
  • Remove from heat and let cool for 5 minutes
  • Place eggs in an ice water bath for 10 minutes
  • Remove eggs from ice water and dip eggs in blueberry dye mixture
  • Set aside eggs to dry and repeat dip dying if a darker colour is desired

As this is a natural way to dye the eggs the hard boiled eggs are safe to eat


Optional – for a more rustic look mix 1 teaspoon cornstarch and 1 teaspoon water to form paste. Use a small paint brush to draw on speckles to dyed eggs once they have air dried
