Choose Based on Color Choice


  1. Gather at least one cup of leftover fruit and vegetable bits.
  2. Chop the fruits and veggies to allow more color to saturate the dye.
  3. Add the chopped food scraps to a saucepan and cover with twice as much water as the food quantity. For one cup of scraps, use two cups of water.
  4. Bring the water to boil.
  5. Reduce heat and simmer for approximately one hour, or until the dye reaches the desired color.
  6. Turn off heat and let the water come to room temperature.
  7. Strain the cooled dye into a container.
