The sweet yellow eggs dry way darker than you think they will, and the smell of simmering orange peels in your kitchen makes these my favorite eggs of the dozen.
We used red cabbage, instead of frozen blueberries, and these eggs also dried a bit darker than we guessed they would. Bonus.
For this beautiful, muted lavender, go to the grape juice. I thought they'd turn out too much like the blue eggs, but as you can see, they're just yummy.
The paprika leaves a bit of a dusting on the eggs, so, if that might bother you, I'd skip. I liked their texture, but they did not dry as smoothly as the other eggs.
I struck out with pink. Maybe I needed to simmer away a few more beets, but I was so hopeful given the bright pink dye. I even added more vinegar along the way and dipped them twice after giving them a chance to dry each time, which didn't seem to help.
