Gary Jackson: Fire When Ready Pottery
A Chicago potter’s somewhat slanted view of clay & play
Categories: food

I tend to dabble in the bottom rungs with my palate of a four-year old.
You may have heard of my strange fascinationf & addiction to Oreos & Twizzlers.
But tonight one of my students brought in a much more “cultural” snack in for class. She recently visited Japan and brought back a box of wagashi rice candies. All labeled in Japanese. No explanation of flavors… or anything else?!

Odd texture. Kinda like a chalky, gummi, chew. Kinda squishy. Powdered exterior.
Odd flavors. Not quite sweet. Not quite fruity.
And yet strangely yummy… and I had more than my fair share of them!!!
