March 30: Easter eggs
March 31, 2013 § Leave a comment
Our Easter eggs are not exactly glamorous, but they certainly are natural. I used beets and red cabbage for one color, and turmeric for the other. I would suggest keeping red cabbage and beets separate. If I wasn’t feeling so frazzled all the time, I would probably have realized that red cabbage is really purple and not red at all, and would thus have had red and purple eggs now. Still, the eggs look interesting and multicolored, and we even decorated them with a wax crayon beforehand. They are now waiting to be oiled and then, according to the Serbian tradition, there will be egg battles in the morning, where each person will try to crack the other person’s egg. May the best egg win! And in case you didn’t know, dyeing eggs is a pagan tradition, symbolizing fertility.
