Bring 1/4 pan of water, 1 tablespoon of salt, 2 tablespoons of vinegar, and 2 tablespoons of the respective fruit, vegetable, or spice (to create the color) to a boil.
Let simmer for 15-30 minutes, and then remove pot from burner. Be sure to strain the dye, and let sit until it's room temperature before dipping your eggs.
