Kitchen Witch

There is a seasonal phenomenon that is the main cause of the bright autumn colors of the leaves. When the autumn days are sunny, plenty of sugar can be produced in the leaves. Then the coolness of the nights prevent the sugar from moving out of the leaves and down to the trunk of the tree. That trapped sugar creates a red pigment called anthocyanin and is what makes the best and prettiest bright colored leaves of the trees such as maples, dogwood, scarlet oak and sassafras.

Speaking of sugar, this Kitchen Witch Spirit Jar will produce a happy haven (or rehab if you will) for those mischievous spirits and fairies who cause the sugar to spill from the bag onto the floor when you are baking those special much appreciated cookies and cakes.
