Well I just couldn’t help myself.  While cooking an in-season bunch of beetroots I couldn’t leave the left over pink water to waste, could I?

I ran downstairs, cut a piece of cotton (I always have some pre-washed handy!), folded it concertina style using a  Shibori method I had read about, cut some square cardboards pieces  (I would use wood blocks next time) and wrapped it in elastic bands.  Once the beetroots were cooked, I plonked my “shibori” test into the hot water and left it soak for about an hour.

Enjoyed eating dinner (hence the cooking of the beetroots).  I removed the tester cotton and left it dry for a day.

Next post will show the progress…
