Making the stickiest playdough EVER!

Mix together in a big 'ol stainless steel pot:
1 cup flour
2 tsp cream of tartar (what is tartar, and why has it been creamed, and why is it called 'cream' when it is, in fact, a powder?)
1 tsp oil
1/4 cup salt

In a different bowl mix together:
1 cup water
food colouring

Add to flour mix and stir over med heat until smooth and clumped into a ball.  Do not pour it out when it's still really liquidy cause this makes a huge mess (trust me).  When it forms a ball, take it out of the pot and knead a few times until the playdough is blended smooth.  Put in an airtight container and it should keep for some time!

mixing the ingredients

cooking the dough.  this was where I poured it out the first time.  very messy.

after cooking

"It's squishy!"

"It's sticking to me!!"
