  2. Add chopped veggies, fruits or spices to the pot.
  3. Reduce the heat to medium and let the water simmer for 15-20 minutes.
  4. Take the pot off the heat and let it cool.
  5. Strain the material with a fine mesh strainer and pour the dye water into containers or jars.
  6. Add 1 teaspoon of vinegar to the dye water and stir to incorporate.
  7. Carefully put the boiled eggs into the jar of dye and secure with a lid.
  8. Place the jar in the refrigerator and let the eggs dye for 6 – 12 hours, the longer the better.
  9. Remove the eggs from the jar and place them on a towel lined cookie sheet to dry.
  10. Allow them to dry completely before removing the decorations (this will reduce the amount of scuffs and marks on the eggs).
