I love resist-dyeing Easter eggs with onion skins and rubber bands.
It seems a miracle that onion skins can produce such a lovely variety of earth tones.
Martha taught me how:
1) Hard-boil eggs and remove them from the water; drop onion skins into the water.
2) When the eggs are cool enough to handle, fasten wide/ heavy rubber bands around the eggs,
looping and twisting them until secure.
3) Boil the eggs with the onion skins until the desired shades are attained,
removing some at different times for lighter and darker tones.
