Cream of Tartar Play Dough
what you will need is a big saucepan, add to it:
cook it over a low heat until cooked into a thick ball that isn't sticky to the touch, beware that you might need the help of several stirrers as it can get very tiring. Then you take it off the heat and let it cool,tho dont let it dry out.
- 4 cups of plain flour, ( no added rising agent )
- 1 cup of salt,
- 2 tablespoons of cream of tartar,
- 1 tablespoon of oil, ( I used olive oil, but you can use whatever kind you have handy )
stir this with a wooden spoon until mixed and then slowly stir while adding
- 4 cups of water
turn it out onto a board and kneed it till soft and pliable. Divide it into equal portions ( I made 4 ) and
add coloring, I used red, green, blue and yellow.
Add as much color as you desire, a little at first and add more for preference.
You can keep the cooked playdough for 4 weeks, store it in the fridge in an airtight container when not in use.
