Ingredients

¼ teaspoon food coloring

¾ cup water
boiling, for each color
1 tablespoon vinegar

For each color, measure food color, water and vinegar into bowl about size of a cereal bowl. Mix well with spoon, use separate spoon for each color.

To make orange dye, mix equal amounts of red and yellow. To make purple dye, mix blue and red. To make green dye, mix blue and yellow.

Following each color listed below, you will find the number of drops of each food coloring to be added to about 2 to 4 ounces of vinegar for dipping.

Lime - 24 yellow, 4 green

Pretty Purple - 15 blue, 5 red

Cantaloupe - 24 yellow, 2 red

Jade - 17 green, 3 blue

Plum - 10 red, 4 blue
