Blueberry Cobbler and Fabric Dye

    Saturday morning when we got up, I was not sure what to fix for breakfast and wanted to make something different, I remembered had a bag of frozen Blueberries in the freezer. So I thawed out enough to make some Blueberry Pancakes, my husband and Grandson loved them, but I still had a good sized bowl full of berries left, so while all the rest was thawing out I saw how dark the juice was from the berries and decided to try my hand at dying some muslin, I found 2 small pieces, put them in the bowl of juice while the berries were thawing in a strainer and a large bowl, that's where the fabric was soaking, then I hung them out to drip dry.
So then after all the berries were thawed out I decided to make a Blueberry Cobble,. turned out pretty good ,it called for 3 cups of fresh,  I guess since these were frozen it made them smaller, I think there are too many berries but my husband doesn't seem to mind .

I was surprised that the color stayed in so good , I then ironed them to keep the color , maybe I better rinse them again just to be sure the color stays.

My next food dye will be beet juice , I have already tried Onion juice and tea bags .they both turned out good also.
