Terrific idea! I hate to waste "anything". My motto is: Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without! I worked too hard for my money to just throw it away needlessly!

Excellent post! How wonderful! I've used goldenrod but never onion skins (much the same color, I guess). Neat!

Blessings!

I've heard of using the skins to dye easter eggs and fabrics, never tried it though.
Will definately keep the onion peices for soup stock - not something I've been very good at. How does one make stock? Store it til your ready to use?? I feel so helpless sometimes!

i'm impressed girl.........mine all go into the stock pot lol. i love the idea of hardcooking eggs with red onion skins though....much better than the little penciled "h" that i put on 'em! (less work for me is always good)

My mom used to use onion skins to color eggs at Easter. We never bought brown eggs so I couldn't say but I'd guess if anything they'd turn darker. Anyway, the eggs we had (white ones) would turn a pretty tan, golden, and brownish as I recall.

Judy, what a great idea...thanks! :) Makes me wonder what color it would turn brown eggs?

I've never used onion skins for fabric or paper but when the children were younger and weren't as careful about checking which eggs were fresh and which were hard boiled (even though they were marked!) I used to put red onion skins in the pot with a bit of vinegar while I was boiling the eggs. It turned them a lovely pinkish tint that was easily distinguishable from the fresh eggs. It is MUCH easier than having a child accidentally try to peel a fresh egg ;-)
