One of my favorite easter traditions is coloring eggs "the santa clara way." By that I mean the way our ancestors did it using red root and onion skins to cook the eggs in. We wrapped the eggs in blossoms, weeds, grass, dandelions, dad's old ties, you name it! Then we wrapped them tight with yarn and popped them in with the red root and onion skins. They turned out so great, we love that tradition!
