One of the things I’ve always had people ask me when they’ve accompanied me into a Deep South country store, like the White Spot down in Seale, is what the heck is white dirt? It is usually packaged in a flimsy plastic bag and just might be sitting there next to a package of yellow root. I’ve known for a while that some people have a craving for it. The “White Dirt” is actually kaolin, also known as china clay and has a bunch of uses. The use I’m most interested in the the one when people eat it. Tonight, I’m getting all the answers to all my white dirt questions. Jill and I are going to the Columbus Museum at 6 p.m. to see a documentary film about white dirt and witness a Q&A by filmmaker, Adam Forrester. The program, “White Dirt, the Fall Line’s Culinary Delight,” should be interesting. If you don’t get a chance to go, I’ll see if I can post some of the more interesting things I’ll learn in a future post.
