If the pirhi in your home are not only a decoration, but you also eat them, it makes sense to paint them with the most natural dyes possible. We have collected the most common ingredients and the shades you get with them.
Natural dyes for pies are far from just onion skins, you can use many other things that you can find in the garden or in the kitchen. It should be noted that natural colors will not be as intense as artificial dyes, but they are therefore much kinder to the environment and to you.

Natural ingredients and color shades you will get with them:
Purple: black grape or black currant juice
- Purple-blue: red onion peels
- Blue: red cabbage, blueberries
- Green: spinach leaves, liquid chlorophyll
- Yellow: turmeric, boiled lemon or orange peel
- Golden brown: dill seeds, onion peels
- Brown: coffee, black walnut shell, black tea
- Orange: carrots, chili powder, ground paprika
- Pink: beetroot, cranberries or cranberry juice, raspberries
- Red: lots of red onion skins and beetroot skins
The same rule applies to natural dyes as to all others – the more you use, the more intense the color will be. In any case, cover the selected food in the pot with water and bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and cook for at least another 15 minutes, preferably an hour. Strain the mixture and add two or three tablespoons of vinegar to the colored liquid.
Meanwhile, cook the eggs and cool them down. Then cover them with the coloring you have prepared – enough to cover the eggs completely. Then soak the eggs until they get the desired shade, you can also leave them overnight in the refrigerator to make the color really intense.
After you have painted the furs, it is recommended to coat them with oil or grease, as this will make them shiny.
