HOM & Beet Painting At Bozeman Winter Market!

NCAT AgCorps member, Luca Mele, made beet paint, and brought it to the Bozeman Winter Market on February 17th while tabling for HOM. They had a “Beet By Number” coloring sheet for the kiddos at the market to use with the paint as well. So much fun! Access the handout here.

They made beet paint by chopping and boiling beets until fork tender, blending with some of the water, straining through a cheesecloth, and adding a handful of salt and about a cup of distilled vinegar. (Scale down for smaller batches)
