During the holidays, creating homemade food coloring adds a personal touch to baked goods and infuses kitchens with the comforting scents of the season. Now more than ever folks want to know what goes into their food, so opting for an all natural solution might be the best option.
From festive reds and greens to soft pastels, homemade food coloring brings a unique and wholesome flair to your seasonal treats, making every bite a celebration of both flavor and tradition. Fruits, vegetables and spices have strong pigment which is what makes them perfect options for natural dyes, however they aren’t as concentrated as regular dye. Color irregularities are a possibility, so be prepared to do some experimentation ahead of time.
