Rick writes – “Boiling eggs that have been wrapped snugly in onion skins, produces beautifully patterned Easter eggs. I never really cared for the usual colourful Easter eggs most people make. They’re too gaudy for my taste. I don’t like the mess involved with making them and I don’t like using all that food colouring. So, for the past ten years or so, I’ve been colouring my Easter eggs the way my grandparents used to; using onion skins.” – Link.
