Easter eggs, also called Paschal eggs,are decorated eggs that are often given to celebrate Easter or springtime. As such, Easter eggs are common during the season of Eastertide. The oldest tradition is to use dyed and painted chicken eggs, but a modern custom is to substitute chocolate eggs, or plastic eggs filled with confectionery such as jelly beans. Eggs, in general, were a traditional symbol of fertility, and rebirth.
In Christianity, the celebration of Eastertide includes Easter eggs symbolizing the empty tomb of Jesus:though an egg appears to be like the stone of a tomb, a bird hatches from it with life; similarly, the Easter egg, for Christians, is a reminder that Jesus rose from the grave, and that those who believe will also experience eternal life.
There are some meanings in decorating the eggs depending if you are Christiam or Ortodox.
Here some tips to obtain natural colors:
When boiling eggs for Easter, a popular tan colour can be achieved by boiling the eggs with onion skins. A greater variety of colour was often provided by tying on the onion skin with different coloured woollen yarn. In the North of England these are called pace-eggs or paste-eggs, from a dialectal form of Middle English pasche. They were usually eaten after an egg-jarping (egg tapping) competition. When boiling them with onion skins leaves can be attached prior to dying to create leaf patterns. Natural colours are obtained by using various plants:
- brown: onion peels;
- black: oak or alder bark or the nutshell of walnut;
- golden: the bark of young apple tree or the marigold flower;
- violet: petals of the mallow flower;
- green: shoots of young rye or leaves of periwinkle;
- pink: the juice of beet.
A fantastic salad can be made with hard eggs (red with Beet), baycon, rocket salad, nuts and dressing. It is simple and looks amazing.
Enjoy it and mess around with the eggs 😉
