I felt bad about hurrying the kids away from the pumpkin patch, so when we got home I made it up to them by helping them make Halloween colored pumpkin balls. I bought these natural vegetable based dyes from The Natural Candy Store, when I purchased our Halloween candy. Should Halloween be capitalized?
The balls did not turn the shade of orange I wanted, but they did come out to be a lovely light orange. No matter, the kids had fun and thought they were delicious. I got the recipe here.
