Does anyone know what the CURE time is for Minwax Antique Oil Finish.  Will be using it on bowls and want to be food safe.  From i hear everything is food safe once it cures.  Thanks in advance  DD

IMO
Wait at least 3 full days, a week would be better.
Many people go by the "rule of thumb" that once you can't smell the finish anymore (it's usually done off-gassing) then it's cured.

Most of these type of finishes are based on boiled linseed oil but very little of the product is actual oil. The majority of the products are mineral spirits or solvents. The solvents evaporate quickly but the oil takes the extra days to fully cure.

You might consider applying on some scrap wood as you intend on bowls, wait a week, and then leave some drops of water on it for a half hour to see if it develops water spots.

Do the spots show dried or not dried?

Water spots may take a few hours to appear.  After allowing some time for the water to sit, wipe the surface dry and check the next morning.
