Edible Playdough Recipe

This recipe yields a large dough, about 1 full medium sized mason jar.
It does need to be said that this recipe is for "playing with" and not for "eating," although it is edible. Just look at how much salt it calls for.

1 cup all-purpose flour + extra for kneading
1/2 cup salt
1 cup water
1-2 TBS canola/vegetable oil
2 tsp cream of tarter
Food coloring drops

Mix the dry and wet ingredients separately and then combine. Microwave on high for 1 minute, then stir well. Microwave for an additional minute, and stir again. Microwave yet 1 more minute, stir and then take out of the microwave. Knead the dough well, using extra flour for the table top and for kneading into the dough to form a ball that isn't too sticky. Store in an air-tight container (I used a mason jar). This should last several weeks.
