 KINO D.I.Y. EDIBLE COLOURS
EASY-TO-MAKE AND IT'S ALL NATURAL-Edible Colours
 Demonstrated by Meldon Sim

Green for leaves or blue for the sky, colours have been associated with nature since ancient times. As science has given us every edible synthetic colour under the sun, making natural edible colours at home is often overlooked due to the convenience of buying artificial colouring with their everlasting shelf life to boot. In Sarawak, with such a vast variety of local fruits and vegetables, including many imported ones at any given local market, it gives us the possibility to create any colour we want. Here are eight, easily made within 2 hours. A quick mix of some of them, like magic, gives us the result of more beautiful colours. And it's delicious to the taste... naturally.

             "Colours made from products found in the market or the garden... and it's so easy"
