I have been wanting to try the colored rice with my son for some time now. I am so cheap sometimes that not until I had to put my sons hand held radio in a bag of rice( because he threw it in the tub filled with water) to dry it out did I know we would try colored rice! When the radio had dried out, it did work after doing this:-), I set the rice aside until I knew what I wanted to do with it. Well, this week was the week the idea came to me for pumpkin spice orange colored rice. Here is the how to on what I did to create orange and pumpkin spice rice.
What you need: a few cups of rice( you can use as little or as much rice as you want), food coloring, water, pan ( or a metal or glass bowl), spoon, newspaper, and pumpkin spice.
What to do: put the rice in the pan. Then in a small bowl put 5 Tbl of water and mix in food coloring( I have a gel orange food coloring I used and we squeezed about 2-3 drops out). Add the mixture to the rice. Now stir until blended. Add a few sprinkles of pumpkin spice and mix again. My rice was slightly wet. I then transferred it to newspaper to dry overnight.
My son got to help me make this and he had fun pouring in the color and mixing it up.
