One year my husband and I decided to do "natural" dying for Easter eggs. We were surprised at what colors some vegetables would turn the eggs. Beets didn't disappoint, but if I remember right, red cabbage turned the eggs blue.

Oh, I just remembered. I bought a purple fennel plant the other day!

Hey Claire, we did that with eggs too one year. We also rubber banded onion skins on some and then boiled them and they turned out in yellow/tan/brown patterns.

Purple fennel--I'm soooo jealous!

In one of my other lives, I weave, spin, and dye. Beets do not produce a "color-fast" dye. And yes, purple cabbage turns blue.
