A little late for this year, but for next; it’s early!

aho's homemade food


Pisanka (or plural: pisanki) is a name for eggs ornamented especially for Easter. There are many various techniques for decorating Easter eggs.
Today, I’m introducing one of the traditional ways, boiling eggs in a decoction of plants or other natural products. In this case: onion peels.
Let’s get started! ^^



onion peels
big pot
inner tube of a bicycle (or elastic bands)


1. Cut the inner tube in stripes. We will use the stripes to make decorations on eggs. You can cut some patterns in the stripes.


2. Place the stripes on the eggs. This way the space under the stripes remain white (after coloring).


3. Boil eggs with onion peels in a big pot. Add enough water to cover the eggs.


4. Cook for about about 10 minutes, then remove from the pot.


5. Remove the stripes from eggs. And we’ve got awesome patterns! ^^

    I love natural dyes! Onion skins made a nice dye, I have liked grapes (grape juice) and also, beet juice… we used rubber bands a few times! Cool post!
