Use these dye baths and vary the amount of time submerged to achieve different gradations in color. For all dye baths: Add 2 teaspoons white vinegar to 1 cup warm water, then add food coloring. Let each egg rest in the dye bath, turning it regularly, for the amount of time indicated, or until the desired shade is achieved. Tip: Dyeing brown eggs will result in a deeper, richer color. (Dye colors listed are available at mccormick.com.)
