Green Eggs and Ham are always a fun thing to make in March in honor of Dr. Seuss and his book Green Eggs and Ham. We took a different spin on this and did a green eggs chemistry experiment. This experiment makes vibrant green eggs that are safe to eat and have no artificial dyes whatsoever!!
You may have seen the chemistry experiment with red cabbage that we have done in the past. It is a really fun experiment! This is similar to that one. You begin with some shredded red cabbage and eggs.
How to Do the Dye-Free Green Eggs Chemistry Experiment:
Put the cabbage into a pot with a little water and boil it until the water turns a deep purple~ about 5-10 minutes.
Next, separate the eggs you are cooking. We made 2 eggs. Put the whites into a bowl and whisk together with some of the liquid from the cooked cabbage. You just need a small amount, a tablespoon or two.
The egg whites are a base and react with the cabbage juice and turn green!
Pour the eggs whites into the pan and then place the yolks on top to cook.
Season & eat! It is dye-free, and delicious!! (No trace of the cabbage taste!)
