I steamed farm beets for supper last week (a vegetable I'm learning to love) and saved the "juice" left in the bottom of the pan. I stored the juice, about 2/3 cup, in a glass jar in the fridge and pulled it out yesterday for the kids to paint with.
The kids also mixed up a yellow paint with 1/2 cup hot water and 1 tbsp tumeric mixed together. The resulting artwork is beautiful and my own art (photography) is inspired by my children's creativity.
