Colorado lawmakers expanding homemade food law

March 11, 2015

Tortillas, fruit empanadas and pickled vegetables could soon join the family of homemade foods that can be sold in Colorado without being made in a commercial kitchen.

A state House committee voted 10-3 Tuesday to add those foods to Colorado's Cottage Foods Act. That's a 2012 law to allow home cooks to sell small amounts of foods without undergoing food safety inspections.
