Hello, I see some people put ur clay in a paper bag to get an earthier taste, how long should one leave it in the paper bag?

I think it varies for each individual depending on their tastes but a few days in a paper bag gives a different taste.
Any suggestions for Sour Clay Lover lady and gents?
Once I bake my clay I leave it in the paper bag I eat from my brown paper bag like a bag of popcorn..lol @ Leslie have you bake you a batch yet?

Ooo got me some clay from Zimbabwe. The same as Mavu's. Tastes sooo good! Crumbly, earthy, dusty, creamy, crunchy..basically all you could ask for in clay! I better not eat it all at once! Don't know the next time I'll get some.

Hello rinkie, as much as I know white clay is not often use in India, you might search on the website like amazon or any other who sells out of here.

I'm waiting for my 2nd batch of white dirt to arrive. At first I did not care for the taste but after microwaving it the taste was better. This time I will microwave as well as bake it to see if I get the same earthy taste as Mary.

I took Mary and Meee's advice and I baked it in my gas oven (have not done this for years)on a cookie sheet.
It tasted better than in the microwave. If I find the patience, I will do it this way more often. I let my nieces taste it and they agree that oven baking taste better. But the microwave will do when quick is the idea :)
How long did you let it cook & at what temp?
Can't wait for it to arrive!!!

I've been working on my powder clay for the longest & since I'm just eating powder clay , my chunks of clay are just sitting in a brown paper bag & it's been sitting in there drying out for a long time . The longer it dries the earthier & crunchier it gets .:) but I'm starting to like the powder form more now . How it easily melts in your mouth & no white residue on your fingers since your eating it from a spoon . & it also seems like a spoonful of powder clay is more than enough . I know I'll have to eat plenty chunks of clay to get that right amount in my mouth . Personal opinion . But maybe someone else feels the same or looking for a moderation technique , so I shared my story .

I'm glad everybody else ate enjoying their clay .:)

@ Alabama Red & Leslie I'm so glad you'll tried it . I knew you'll would like it especially when it hot straight out the oven. "Cheers"
