Have you gathered your onion skins yet?

Better hurry!  There won't be many onion skins sitting on the bottom of the onion bins as Easter is approaching.  Folks who are in the know dye their eggs with the all natural dye made from boiling onion skins and then boiling the eggs in that same water with the onion skins (still in the water).  The onion skins cushion the eggs and prevent them from cracking, and further decorate the eggs by mottling the surface of the egg shells.
