ökoNORM is a unique producer of ecologically friendly nawaro products. The abbreviation nawaro comes from the German “Nachwachsende Rohstoffe“, which means “renewable raw materials”. nawaro products are made from sustainable resources, environmentally friendly and absolutely non-toxic.
Most ökoNORM products have been distinguished as "very good" or "good" by the consumer magazine ÖKO-TEST and have received the “spiel gut” (good toy) certificate.
How to use:
Fill 750 ml cold water into a stainless steel sauce pan and mix in the dye. Note that other pans may stain.
Carefully put 5-7 raw, clean eggs into the mixture. They should be covered by about 1 cm of water.
Bring the water to a boil whilst carefully stirring to mix in the dye. The green dye produces foam that will be distributed by stirring.
Once the water is boiling, continue to cook the egg for 7-10 minutes. Refresh the eggs with cold water after cooking.
The sachet is for one round of colouring, additional rounds will have less intense colours.
These natural colours may react different to different kinds of eggs. They tend to intensify during the cooling process and tend to be deeper on brown eggs.
Any discolouration of pans or equipment should wash off after a few washes with regular washing up liquid.
