Homemade salt crystals -
Epsom salt or table salt
2 same sized glass jars
mixing bowl & spoon
cotton string or paper towel
2 paper clips
Measure 2 jarfuls of warm water
Mix with Epsom salt in the bowl - enough salt that it doesn't dissolve any more. The warmer the water, the more salt.
(You could boil the water first, add salt to the pot, then let it cool so the glass jars don't crack.)
Place the jars on the tray and fill with the salted water.
Attach a paper clip to each end of the string or rolled paper towel, lower each end into a jar to reach the bottom.
Leave a dip in the middle so the water will drip down.
(If the string dries out, spoon a little salted water on it.)

1/2 C plain yogurt
pinch of nutmeg
Fresh or frozen blue berries
Blend the first 3 ingredients in a food processor
Stir in a large handful of blueberries
Fill posicle molds
Freeze at least 4 hours
Change is coming.
