Plant-based Color for Your Easter Eggs


  • Submitted

This Easter, color your eggs with natural dyes made from herbs and plants. Bend-based company, ColorKitchen, has an Easter egg coloring kit made with vibrant, natural dyes so you can hue up those eggs in a rainbow of colors without any artificial dyes. Founder Ashley Phelps started ColorKitchen because she has a sensitivity to chemical additives but loves her sweets, so she started making food coloring products in 2015. The Easter egg coloring kit includes three colors: yellow-orange, purple and blue. Those colors come from cabbage, radish and annatto, a food coloring derived from the seeds of the achiote tree. You can find the kit at Central Oregon Locavore, Market of Choice and online.
