Dye: Place onion skins, water and vinegar into a saucepan and boil, covered for at least 30 minutes. Cool to room temperature.

Step 1: Tie a knot in stocking leg, then cut about 8cm from knot. Repeat to form a ‘pocket’ for each egg to be dyed in. Place a herb leaf over each egg and tuck into stocking ‘pocket’, making sure that leaves are smooth against egg’s shell. Pull tight and tie with a knot.

Step 2: Place eggs in a single layer in a pot, submerged completely in dye. Bring to the boil and cook for 3-5 minutes, then remove from heat and cool in dye, or leave overnight. Remove eggs from dye and dry on paper towel.

Step 3: Unwrap and carefully peel off herb leaves.
