    I made rainbow sheperd’s pie once

    I mixed the following juices with mashed potatoes to color them

    red: tomato juice (wouldve used beets, had i any)
    orange: carrot juice
    yellow: pinch o’ tumeric
    green: kale juice
    blue: cabbage juice plus baking soda (a base or alkali will react with cabbage juice to turn blue)
    purple: cabbage juice.

    so colorful but not a taste of each in the potatoes. Not sure how well it’d work for sweet baked goods. :(

      hi just wondering if anyone has tried these juices/ food items as colourings for making play dough for children with allergies

      1. trajayjay says:

        Well, none of these items are common allergies. I’d be more concerned about the flour in the playdough. Wheat is a common allergen. So is gluten, well, it’s not really an allergy, but if any of the children swallow it, some ppl don’t process gluten well, so they might suffer.
