We normally did not have Hot Cross Buns for Good Friday in Romania. In fact, Good Friday would normally be a fasting day in preparation for Easter. However, my kids are born in the US and, even though we go by the Orthodox calendar, they want to celebrate everything so here we are making Hot Cross Buns.
This year I used onion peel, wild blueberries, turmeric and beets to color our Easter Eggs.
I also tried spinach but the color did not come out ok, it was a very pale green. Please check out this post for more information on how I colored the eggs – Naturally Dyed Easter Eggs.
I can’t believe Easter is a week away, or two weeks for the Orthodox Easter !!! Here is some inspiration for naturally dying your eggs; this will be the 3rd year I use fruit and vegetables to color the eggs and it’s always a surprise and excitement to see the results.
