Wordless Wednesday – Don’t Use Rock Salt

I am supposed to make play dough for our church’s Children’s Ministry. Thinking I had all of the ingredients, Mr. Me-Too and I launched into this cooking adventure this morning.

But I lacked some good ‘ol Morton’s Table Salt.

I use Real Salt for our food.

However, we use Rock Salt to make homemade ice cream. Salt is salt. Right?

If you would like to make some play dough today, I have included the recipe for your kitchen endeavor. Hope you have all of the ingredients!

Homemade Play Dough

1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt (NOT Rock Salt!)
2 TBSP vegetable oil (I used Olive Oil . . . it was all I had.)
2 tsp. cream of tartar
1 cup water

Mix all ingredients together and heat (medium heat) until mixture pulls away from sides of pan, (about 2-3 minutes.) Keep stirring with wooden spoon to keep from getting lumpy. For coloring add a few drops of food coloring to the water. Store play dough in a Ziploc bag or Tupperware.

I have made lots of playdough with my kids. I am glad to know that I should never use rock salt!
