we did the scavenging for our woodland egg supplies two nights ago, thinking we would wake up yesterday to another 5 inches. luckily, the storm missed us. which was nice, as some of our favorite specimens had shriveled up despite our best efforts.
these easter eggs are the most "wow" inducing eggs we've tried. they even beat out last years. they are also super simple. just poke around the yard, grab some nylons, elastics, yellow onions and vinegar and you're good to go. that sounded more involved than it really is::
wetting the eggs definitely helps with the process. then just stretch the nylons tightly over the greenery and tie them up. for these dozen eggs i used the skins of two small bags of yellow onions and about a 1/2 cup of vinegar. add water until everything is just covered and bring to a simmer. simmer for 15 minutes and let sit for 15 more. worth every minute. so beautiful and all natural, what more could you ask for?
