Natural Rainbow Challah

Show your support for the trans community! With Question 3 on the upcoming Massachusetts ballot, it’s a good time to remind everyone how authenticity brightens the world. So much color already exists in nature, so why not tap into it? This recipe uses ingredients like beet juice, turmeric, spinach and cooked blueberries to color the dough. Forget chemical dyes fraught with fake color and come as you are!
