In a large saucepan, mix together:
-3 cups Flour
-1 ½ cups Salt
-3 cups Water
-2 TB vegetable oil
-1 TB Cream of Tartar
-Food coloring or unsweetened Kool-Aid pkg for color.
Cook over medium-low heat, stirring frequently, until the dough pulls away from the sides of the pan and gets too thick to stir (about 10-15 minutes). Remove from heat and let cool until it can be handled. Place on counter or wax paper and knead several times until smooth. Store in an air-tight container.
