OK-So this isn't exactly a food recipe but it uses food stuff and it looks pretty cool too! Fun for kids to make.Plus you can point out that oil is lighter than vinegar...a little Science never hurt anyone!

- In a clean jar/bottle with a lid put 1 cup of vinegar.
- Add your food coloring.
- Add your mineral oil and close lid tight.
- Set on a flat surface and watch it swooch.
- Have fun!

Fun little project! Doesn't look like much in the photo, but makes a great movie. It took us a while to find the right bottle; needs a cylindrical shape with a tapered neck to develop waves that move well. Ours is only a pint, but a nice coffee-table conversation piece. Made for OZ/NZ swap for Dec. 2008.
