Here is the preferred method for using natural dyes:

3. Add the natural dye. Use more dye material for more eggs or for a more intense color.
4. Bring water to a boil.
5. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes.
6. If you are pleased with the color, remove the eggs from the liquid.

Down the Rabbit Hole

February 19th, 2008 · Comments Off

Join Michael Rowan every Saturday night from 9 until midnight on a trip back through Time…to the Age of Aquarius…when FM radio was not AM radio all over again & on any given night you could hear music from anywhere in the world…& oftentimes from out of this world as well.
Take a wander Down the Rabbit Hole and you will find the psychedelic 60s in all its glory…the obscure & the strange happily mixed with the familiar… and long generous slices of rare live concerts…in rock…blues… folk…medieval magic swimming in electric colours…the thunder of Third World and the whisper of Conscience…

Michael maintains that once upon a time, this music stopped a war.
Tune in. Turn it on. Maybe the magic still works…
