Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This recipe was done by my Grandmother every Easter. She did not like the commercially colored eggs and was always so proud of the beautiful colored eggs she got from the skins of the onions. She would hold up an egg, turning it and say "Look at this beautiful egg!" I also included an additional recipe that I got off the internet which requires wrapping the egg in the onion skin. We will try this alternative this next Easter. Be sure to start collecting Onion skins about a month or two before Easter.
