What could be better than dying your very own eggs with the kids this Easter? It couldn't be easier, and the end results are just so beautiful. Plus, the dyes are all natural and made with leftover veggies and scraps that would've otherwise just have been thrown away.

These gorgeous eggs are such a wonderful Easter project, and once you've found them after your Easter egg hunt, you can use them to make my delicious egg molee!

Add the eggs to the freezer bag, no more than 6 at a time per bag. Seal with a clip and place in the Varoma dish.
