but onto the point of this post - the dye we use to make said "fighter eggs", or for most families, the traditional colored Easter eggs. make sure you put a little attention into what you're actually using to dye the eggs - if there is gluten in the dye, then there will be gluten on your eggs, on your hands, probably on your kitchen table and most likely also in your eggs. so choose carefully - for the past few years we have opted to avoid the Easter research project and just stick with some good old food coloring, vinegar and boiling water. works like a charm! (clubhouse/mccormick food coloring that can be found at any grocery store is gluten free in case you don't have a tried and tested favorite, and heinz white vinegar is good to go).
i have also seen posts for dyeing eggs with natural dyes, such as onion skins, beets, cammomile tea, etc. this sounds really lovely and healthy and chemical free, but being that it's already the tuesday before Easter i'm going to opt for the chemical-laden food coloring this year and put the natural colors on the back burner until next year ;)
happy egg dyeing and good luck with your fighter egg-
