    Wondering if anyone has ever done this method.

    Lost my Mom a few years back and she always would collect the purple skins
    of onions to color her eggs. She was of Polish descent. I never paid much attention
    and would love to try it.

    Anyone color their eggs in this method?

    Well, a good idea for getting onion skins is to try out this eastern german recipe:

    Onion Soup

    1 lb yellow onions
    3 tablespoons butter
    1 tablespoon flour
    1 apple
    4 cups beef stock
    1/2 cup lager beer
    1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram
    Salt, pepper
    1 bunch fresh chives, chopped
    5 tablespoons Emmenthal cheese, grated
    2 tablespoons croutons (optional)

    Halve, peel and thinly slice the onions. Melt the butter in a saucepan, add the onions and sauté until onions turn translucent. Quarter, core, peel and thinly slice the apple. Combine it with the onions and sauté for a few minutes. Gradually add the flour, then the beef stock and beer. Season to taste with marjoram, salt and pepper. Simmer over medium-low heat for 15-20 minutes. Before serving sprinkle the soup with chives, grated Emmenthal and/or croutons.

    Sounds yummy. Of course there's beer in it.
