Natural food colourings from the garden in autumn

Creating natural food colourings

We decided to do a bit of experimenting with some colourful ingredients from the garden to see what passes the 'it looks like it's full of things which will be bad for me, but actually it's all natural goodness' test. Can you match the colours produced with their natural origins?

 For each colour, there is a set of pictures, starting with natural materials through to finished product. Click on each picture to see a brief description of each stage of the process.

Please send us your results - especially if you manage a better green than we did on our first attempt!
