Cochineal is entirely natural and produces a vivid red. It is made from the shells of beetles.

comment Basil - to wash or not to wash? Best practices?
Well, in that case you may as well not wash it at all. Lukewarm water is a germ's best friend, so it's doubtful whether you're cleaning it much, let alone sterilising it. Besides, just because everyone at the supermarket can touch it, it doesn't mean they have.

comment Is it okay to put baking powder in Yorkshire Pudding batter?
+1 - hot fat is the absolute no. 1 factor in a well-risen Yorkshire Pudding in my experience. I heat mine for at least half an hour.

I didn't say you needed it, I said pastry chefs use it :P
