Oua rosii de Paste vopsite natural (Red Easter Eggs Naturally Dyed)

Share

Please scroll down for English version


            O traditie frumoasa ce insoteste sarbatoarea de Paste este vopsirea oualor rosii. Mama vopsea in fiecare an ouale cu foi de ceapa rosie, traditional decorate si intotdeauna rosii! Dupa acest obicei, anul acesta am incercat sa le vopsesc si eu, tot cu foi de ceapa rosie, pentru a pastra amintirea frumoasa pe care o am intiparita in minte si in suflet si fara de care parca nu sunt Pastile la fel.  Mai jos puteti citi si vedea din fotografiile pas cu pas exact cum le-am decorat si vopsit ouale astazi :) Paste Fericit tuturor si sa ciocniti cu toata lumea!

Ingrediente:  

     Oua - eu am vopsit 12
     Foi de ceapa rosie (cam de la 1 kg de ceapa)
     3 linguri otet
     1 lingurita sare
     frunze pentru decorat
     ciorap nylon
     ata




Cum se face:  

Mai intai spalam bine ouale in apa calduta. Le asezam pe servete absorbante.
Cojile de ceapa le punem in oala si turnam aproximativ 1,5 litri de apa peste ele, adaugam sarea si otetul si punem la foc mic sa fiarba timp de 20 minute.


Cand apa incepe sa se coloreze bine, ne apucam de oua. Spalam frunzele pentru decorat.


Luam un ou si asezam o frunza lipita cu fata de ou, fixand-o cu putina apa.

 
Asezam oul in ciorap cu grija, pentru an nu deranja frunza.


Ciorapul il strangel usor la spate, il rasucim si il legam cu ata.


  Taiem ciorapul pe langa ou, il punem deoparte si continuam cu celelalte oua. Puteti sa puneti si cate 2 frunze, daca doriti.


Verificam culoarea din apa si punem ouale usor in oala, acoperindu-le cu foile de ceapa.(eu le-am incalzit in putina apa mai intai ca sa nu crape)


Lasam sa fiarba la foc mic timp de 20-30 minute, pana cand va convine culoarea obtinuta.
Cand sunteti multumiti de nuanta, scoateti ouale din apa, si lasati-le sa se raceasca putin pe servet de hartie.
Luati jos ciorapul si frunzele si dati ouale cu putin ulei pentru luciu. Et Voila!


Ouale sunt frumoase, cu o culoare intensa, exact asa cum imi plac :)


 Frumoase si naturale :) Le-as fi asezat in cos cu iarba proaspata, doar ca aici a fost asa de frig in ultima vreme, ca iarba e tare mica :)


Paste Fericit tuturor!!!

             On Easter a very beautiful tradition is to dye the eggs red. My mother used to dye eggs each year using red onion skins, traditionally decorate them and always red!!! Following this tradition, I've tried to dye them myself this year, with onion skins as well, to keep fresh the beautiful memory I have written in my mind and soul, without which Easter isn't really the same for me. You can scroll down and read and see my step by step photos exactly how I decorated and dyed the eggs today :) Happy Easter everyone!
            

Ingredients:    

     Eggs - I've dyed 12 
     Red onion skins - from 1.5 kg of red onion
     3 tablespoons white vinegar
     1 teaspoon salt
     leaves to decorate
     nylon stockings
     some thread

How it's made:   

We first wash the eggs very well with warm water. We place the eggs on paper towels.
We place the red onion skins in a pot and we pour 1,5 litres of water on them, we add salt and vinegar and we place it on low heat to boil for 20 minutes.
When the water starts to color nicely, we prepare the eggs. We wash the leaves and set them aside.
We take an egg and place a leaf on the egg face down, fixing it with a drop of water.
We place the egg in nylon stocking, without messing the leaf, and we twist it at the back and tie it with some thread.
We cut the stocking and set aside the egg, and continue with the rest of the eggs.
When we are finished with the decorating, we place the eggs in the pot gently and cover with onion skins (I first placed the eggs in some warm water before I placed them in the pot, not to crack).
We let the eggs boil for 20-30 minutes, until we have the desired color.
We take out the eggs gently and we place them on paper towels, leaving them to cool down a little bit (2 min)
 We remove the nylon stocking, oiling the eggs a bit, so they shine nicely. Et Voila!
The eggs are beautiful, with an intense color, exactly how I like them :)
Beautiful and natural, I would've placed them in a basket filled with fresh grass, but it was so cold lately in Toronto, that the grass is kind of absent, or too small :)
Happy Easter everyone!

  8. Minunat articol! Sper ca e ok ca am postat o fotografie pe blogul meu cu creditul necesar si link la blogul tau. Daca nu, contacteaza-ma si o voi inlatura. As fi vrut sa fac propriile mele fotografii la oua vopsite de mine - si eu le fac tot asa - dar anul asta am reusit sa ratez ocazia neplanificand cojile de ceapa din timp...
