Instructables
many instructables require food coloring but how many of you have it??? so i made this to help you all instruct to construct!!!!

Step 1: Tools/stuff

i used salt (almost any thing whiteish and grainy works/fabric
1 pot of water
sprinkles (1 color at a time,rainbow turns brown)or fruit peels of the desired color
if you youse sprinkles, only follow steps 2-3
if you use fruit peels, follow steps 4-5.



the pic below is only for the people using peels!

Step 2: Part 1

pour enough whiteish grainy stuff(prefferably salt)or fabric into a pot of boiling water so that it is not all dissolved. drain all the water, not salt/fabric, and then mix it with alot of sprinkles until it takes that color.

Step 3: Patience test

let it dry for 30 min, ocassionally adding something to absorb ecsess moisture.

Step 5: Dry it out!

let it dry for 30 min in the sun!

I believe you'd know them as "hundreds and thousands" or something like that. originally, the ible had sprinkles, not fruit peels, if I remember right. At the very least, they're mentioned in step 1 as a possibility.

This seems very temporary and kind of useless,
Well, thats kind of mean, I think it's great.
for what exactly?

Well, given that food coloring IS added (via sprinkles) it's pretty much not what it said it is. Plus, how many people have a need for colored salt? And the photos are blurry. With some work, this could be interesting and informative, but right now... :(
