Hmmmm, this prompts me to post about my problems with Pripps too…
I tried using exactly the same ingredients as did you, including the
20 mule team borax, and couldn’t get the stuff to stay in solution.
It would disolve, turn (yes, me too) a lovely blueish color, and then
fall back out once it had completely cooled - usually a good couple
hours later. I tried boiling for long periods, adding copious amounts
of water, emailing Peter Rowe so many times I was afraid he’d
disconnect his computer , and made multiple batches with the
same result every time…solid white crystalization all around the
sides of the pot (or, in the first case, the glass jar I’d transfered
it into which then had to be tossed, crystals and all). I’d given up,
but since the topic has been brought up…
Anyone? Jessica in SF, where the storm has turned my garden into a
verdant floral paradise.
