Brown Onion Skins (not Red) Color Armenian Easter Eggs Red

Amazing . . . an all natural dye made from BROWN onion skins, skins that typically get thrown into the compost heap . . . brown onion skins which when boiled in water turn the water blood red and dye  white eggs red, (all natural, of course,) an exercise Armenians practice every Good Friday.  If you want your eggs to be decorative and not simply a deep red, hard boil the eggs by adding them to the "onion-skinned" water and simmer 'til hardboiled.  The result? Lovely decorations on the surface of the hardboiled eggs which are now dyed red.

There's a sermon here.  Can any of you give it?
