I don't bake my famous scones (god they were good!) or bread anymore, nor do I make my once-favourite pasta (note to self - put the pasta machine on ebay), so Mrs Shmaltz had an absolutely fantastic idea...
- 2 cups flour
- 4 tablespoons cream of tartar
- 2 tablespoons cooking oil (good way to get rid of some of that old rancid vegetable oil)
- 1 cup salt
- food colouring
- 2 cups water
Mix the above ingredients in a saucepan, and stir over medium heat for 3-5 mins, until the mixture congeals.
What a great way to recycle waste accumulating in the pantry!
Kept the kids entertained for hours.
