After the first step in this recipe, I added a pinch of ground cinnamon to the sauce and drizzled olive oil over top. Then I used a toothpick to remove the food coloring from my hands. I knew what I was doing, and it made it much easier for me to pour the sauce into the colander.
I’d always been a fan of cinnamon, but I’ve never considered adding it to a dish before. When I found out that cinnamon is a natural diuretic I went nuts. I found that once I added some cinnamon it made a huge difference in the consistency of the sauce I end up with.
I think you should give it a try. You might like it.
I agree with your advice. I’ve spent a lot of money on various food-colorant sprays that I use in the kitchen but I always end up with the same consistency everywhere. I’ve tried a few different brands and I’m not a fan of any of them. I just use a regular old toothpaste.
The cinnamon-based food coloring I recommend is called Cinammon, and it’s a mixture of red food coloring and ground cinnamon. It’s one of the most popular food dye products in the world, and the ingredient list can be found here.
I personally find this idea of using food coloring in general to be gross and unnecessary (although I agree with your general stance on it). Why is it an issue in the first place? Because food coloring is one of those things that the U.S. government and food companies don’t like to share with the public. The FDA doesn’t want people to know you can use food coloring in food because “it can damage the taste and smell of the food.
The issue is that people eat and use food coloring in products like juice, jam, and so forth. I also do not like the idea of using food dyes in coffee, which the FDA has actually banned. Coffee is a really important part of people’s diet and it is not a good choice to use food dyes in it.
I think we should stop using food dyes in coffee. You know what I mean? We should put food dyes like food coloring in tea, coffee, and a plethora of other beverages.
I think this problem is the same as that of when food is made with colors like red, yellow, and blue. All of them have been used for years in food and the government has made it clear that they don’t want any more use of the colors. In fact, they’ve even banned food coloring. The FDA does however allow for the use of food dyes in some cases.
I think what we need is a food coloring that is more toxic than those other colors. I think this would kill a lot of people because red is basically the same as blood and yellow and blue are basically the same as urine.
