materials

  • Plastic take-out containers or wide-mouthed glass jars (high enough to submerge husks)

steps

  1. Moisten husks, then pull back if not already pulled back.

  2. Mix each dye with water in containers or jars according to package directions.

  3. Cover a flat surface with paper towels. Submerge husks (but not corn) completely in dye; let soak a few minutes.

  4. Remove husks from dye bath. Lay corn on paper towels; let dry overnight.
