Salt Dough Conclusions

We tried 3 different “recipes” for Salt Dough this year; really they are the same recipe but the ratios are different.

 First:

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup salt
  • ½ water

Second:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup salt
  • ¾ cup water

And

Finally – the one that worked the best for us:

  • 4 cups flour
  • 1 cup salt
  • 11/4 cup water

Lessons learned:

  • Hot water, start with hot water
  • Dissolve the salt first
  • Humidity is important – the best dough we made was on days we had been boiling water in the kitchen for hours to “add water” to the environment
  • You really need to bake them for longer than you think to get them all dry

 

I am thinking we’ll pull this recipe out in a month or two and see what else we can do with it.
