Yes Leslie I was curious too! Do you buy wholesale from your supplier?
Also everyone is it better to microwave the white dirt or stick it in the oven? Which one has that earthier taste?

I just LOVE U LESLIE!!!!! Thanks for the how to on drying the dirt. I did mine in The oven and I think I may have scorched . That man ate it anyway just like all my cooking!!!! Looking forward to my order. Without clay idk what I'll do!
I love you too meee258 :) and you are most welcome.

Girl that's love, he eats all your cooking and your burnt dirt too! Hes a keeper :)

I think In the oven is fine. I think it would do well on a low steady heat maybe? Mary Tyler responded that it tastes earthier so I'm gonna try it out this weekend. I did this along time ago but its been a while.

@Mary Tyler what heat setting do you dry on in the oven (I have gas heating)?

Chunks, definitely! For real clay, I have been limited to powder but I usually add water and turn it into chunks.
With the earthy stuff that I dig here, it's chunks as well - there's just something so satisfying about biting into a chunk. It is so crumbly that it turns to powder easily. I occasionally eat the powder, but I mostly throw it away which seems so wasteful. I'm going to wet what I have now and see if I can get it to chunk again because I'm probably not going to be able to get a fresh supply of chunks for a while.
