i received big bunch of red shiso(perilla) from
a kind neighbor. as this has such a great deep
purple color, i was kind of looking forward to
this free giveaway. with these leaves, i did
two things this afternoon.
i used half of leaves for shiso sour juice
another half for natural dyeing.
rinsed and boiled for 5min
then, add 1cup of vineger
and 1 cup of sugar
this is the result. beautiful natural sour drink
to boost energy during the hot summer.
another half used for dyeing white cotton fabric.
i look forward to see how the color comes
out tomorrow when it is completely dry.
