    Not exactly edible, but:

    Maybe 15-20 years ago a news photographer from one of our Toronto
    papers used water from Lake Ontario to get a faint image on film.
    Story was of course about pollution.

    The use of cranberry juice would also eliminate the film or paper developing a yeast infection.

    Just my thoughts.

    I have also heard the one about (or should that be aboot) lake Ontario. Seems you need a developing time of about 24 hours, gives a whole new meaning to high dilution- full stand developers

    Just imagine the edge effects!

    well THAT is amazing...24 hours!

    I never got vanilla to work...I guess I just didn't leave the film in the developer for long enough

    after all...if I used chocolate, it's only fair that I use vanilla too

    The edge effects of lake Ontario are mostly mud.

    Grant Haist suggested wine and urine. Maybe all of that finds its way into the lake and results in a weak developer.

    I'm wondering what compound(s) in mint function as the developer...

    so far these are the ones I've found:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pulegone

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Menthol

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Methyl_salicylate

    what about these as developers?


    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salicylic_acid

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aspirin

    I suppose if aspirin worked I would have heard about it by now....

    OK, I admit it

    I'm having wayyyyyyyyy too much fun

    here's patent information on a biodegradable developer using mint and/or vanillin:

    If you search for "parodinal" you'll find a developer made with Tylenol and lye. Maybe that's what that whole Tylenol scare thing was about.
