I decided to dye it to make it more interesting. I used Country Classic slate blue which I have had for ever. A very little bit of this dye goes a long, long way which I can attest to since I have had it for 17 years and am no where near the bottom of the container. It is much more economical than Kool-aid but not non-toxic so I have to use separate cookware for any of the commercial dyes.
It is a vibrant blue!
