Organic Hopi Red Dye Amaranth

$4.00


Domesticated 6,000 years ago in Mexico and traded north into the Hopi lands, this beautiful amaranth produces extravagant dangling flower panicles all summer. Tiny black high-protein seeds were traditionally popped for eating. Young leaves can be added to salads and stir-fries. The entire plant is deep red; dried leaves and flower heads make a gorgeous food coloring.
