Maybe you were in need of inspiration to decorate your Easter eggs a few weeks ago. If so, here is a very simple and original way to beautify them for next year! This method is inspired by Eastern Europe (especially Poland) where onions are used to create a thin coloured surface for drawing patterns on the eggs. You will only need about one red onion per egg to decorate and a touch of white vinegar.
First, you must boil water (enough to cover the eggs) in a saucepan with the onion skins and a few tablespoons of white vinegar. Then, let the mixture cool for about 30 minutes. After that, add the egs, wait for about thirty minutes again, remove them and dry them properly; they will have a red tint and with a fine needle, you will be able to draw on them as in the following image:
It is also possible to decorate them with leaves or plants by sticking them directly to the eggs during cooking. Let’s get creative!
