This is a really simple and natural way to dye hard boiled eggs for Easter that will not stain the egg whites (which I think is a major benefit). I love the natural brown hues of these eggs. We are fortunate to own six chickens and there is nothing better than a simple, fresh egg. But I had to actually go out and buy eggs at the market for this recipe because our chickens are laying eggs in hues of brown and even green but not white. And while it is amazing to have very fresh eggs on hand at all times, it is actually better to use eggs that are 3-5 days old or they may be hard to peel.
