Natural Alternatives to Food Coloring?

thursday | Feb 17, 2011 01:48 PM

This was the first holiday season in which we've been avoiding food coloring for health reasons, and it was a little sad for me, especially the lack of red - no candy cane twist cookies, no pink icing on Valentine's Day cupcakes... For Easter Eggs I've heard of using beets, but that's not going to work in icing and sweets. I'm hoping to start getting a list together for experimenting throughout the year so that I can have a good list of alternatives for the next few holidays. St. Patrick's Day and my shamrock cookies are just around the corner...

Any thoughts?
