This makes the best pink natural food coloring. I like to use it in my frostings for a lovely pink. Because it is hibiscus, it gives the frosting a nice fruity flavor.
Hibiscus Natural Food Coloring
- 2 cups water
- 2 Tablespoons dried hibiscus
Put the water and hibiscus in a pot and bring to a boil.
Boil with the lid off... Until there is just a tinny bit left only about a 1/4 cup or less--make sure not to burn it!
Strain out any large pieces, by pouring it through a sieve.
Put it in a glass gar and use when needed.
You can also freeze this as shallow ice cubes for using later.
Ways To Use Your Natural Food Color:
Works really well for a light pink natural looking frosting. It also gives the icing a nice light fruity flavor. All in all this is probably my favorite food coloring.
- Another way to use this food coloring is to mix a tiny bit into some flaked coconut and use it in place of sprinkles or just use as you would flaked coconut, for a fun change.
Have fun with it!
