Onion Marbled Eggs

Not everybody has the artistic ability to create beautiful Easter eggs, so here is a technique for you.  Simply by using pieces of dried onion skins, you will be able to create stunning, marbled eggs, free of any toxins.

Supplies needed for this technique:
-12 fresh eggs
-onion skins
-old pantyhose
-large pan

  •  First collect as many onion skins (preferably from yellow or red onions) as possible. This is the very first layer of onion that we usually peal off. Cut them into pieces of different sizes, and set aside.
  • Cut the pantyhose legs into 3 inch long pieces.
  • Tie the bottom of each piece with a string, sealing the end.
  • Place some onion skins inside, creating a little nest.
  • Place one raw egg on top of the onion skins, and cover the egg with some more onion skins, completely covering the whole egg. Stretch the pantyhose over the egg, creating a tight fit and tie the top with another string. If you see any egg showing move some of the skins around to cover it up.
  • Repeat this process with all the eggs.
  • Place all the eggs in a large pot and cover with water so they are all submerged. Bring to boil and cook for 10 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and spoon out the eggs into a bowl and let cool.
  • When cool cut the stockings open to reveal the beautifully marbled eggs.
  • Let eggs dry.  To bring out the colors, rub each egg with piece of bacon, or oil. This will provide a beautiful shine.
