Here are my beautiful results! From top left to right: Onion dye 2-3 hours room temp and oiled with olive oil, Cabbage dye room temp 2 hours, Cabbage dye + turmeric powder boiled then refrigerated 2 hours. Bottom Left to Right: turmeric dye, Cabbage dye refrigerated, Cabbage dye + baking soda room temp
Yellow Onions: Remove skins only from 8 large onions. Place in pot and add 3 cups water. Boil and then simmer for 15-30 minutes or more. Cool to room temp, strain and place liquid in shallow pot. Add 2 tablespoons vinegar and add uncooked eggs to dye. Bring to a boil and cook 1 minute then take off heat and let come to room temp. Place eggs in dye at room temp or in fridge. Dyes dark REDDISH-ORANGE.
Also you can wrap some hardboiled eggs in the remaining skins tightly (i used a paper towel) and refrigerate. Adds a fun texture.

So I did try using liquid chlorophyll and it does dye eggs GREEN (see below) but it was grainy and the color didn't seem especially colorfast (ie I think i would remove it if I wiped the egg). The YELLOW below is Turmeric boiled in water and add a little vinegar.
