  1. I always mean to try this when I soak black beans and then I don’t! Did you just soak the cloth in the black bean juice? Good to see you here Coco 🙂

      After soaking in black bean extract, I used “alum” to
      let the color stay but there are other things you can use, I am sure.
      Any kind of experiment like this is fun! Hope you enjoy it.
