For a project I'm working on, I need something to be black.  I'd rather not rely on dye if I can help it.  What are some foods that are, or will turn other things, black or nearly black?

oh yes very much so, it's what they use to dye pasta, you know the fancy different coloured stuff? it's dyed with tomato, spinach or squid ink depending on colour

black olives?

also, in my experience, eggplant tends to turn black when cooked. I've no idea if that means i'm doing it right or not, but its definitely not burned, still tastes good....just darkens dramatically in the oven!!

actually according to my google search..."When cutting an eggplant, you may want to use a stainless steel knife due to the fact that carbon steel will react with some of the phytonutrients in the eggplant and cause it to turn black."

wow. who knew.
