um, do you have to use vegetable oil?

its lovely and easy i like your taste

I add a few drops of oil of wintergreen as a preservative.

And it's edible!

Keep in mind 2 tablespoons of table salt is enough to kill a 60 lb kid. So, not so much.

Is that right?
Mind you, I thought the whole point was to make it salty enough it was inedible. So you could leave a lot of salt out for an edible version, perhaps?

I think the salt content is primarily a preservative and possibly structure. I don't imagine it would be too palatable. If one has a kid that likes to eat non-food stuffs, this might be a project to pass over.
