Dyed Easter Egg Round-Up

Every year there seems to be a rush to re-define the dyed Easter Egg. As a result, tons of techniques for dying hard boiled eggs have popped up. For example, as I mentioned last year, there’s natural dye, which is made from kitchen ingredients such as turmeric, beets, and coffee. It looks like this:

Martha Stewart has the brilliantly simple idea of using narrow strips of electrical tape on the eggs before you dye them, which can look like this:
