The other day I purchased a bag of Klondike Goldust potatoes. They're really good baked. They almost taste like mashed potatoes if cooked enough. The other day I had a Klondike with sour cream and chives but I ran out of the sour cream. They're still very good with a pat of butter and salt and pepper.
These potatoes are grown in Idaho. I like to support produce grown in this country when I can. Something I didn't realize is potatoes contain a lot of Vitamin C and no fat. So eat potatoes with abandon. Wonder if these potatoes are named after the goldrush in Canada to the Klondike region?
Today marks the beginning of the first six weeks hand building pottery classes here in my Blairsville, Georgia studio. Classes are ongoing for those who wish to return. I'll be busy this summer with beginning and intermediate students.
I have a detailed curriculum planned which covers safety in the studio, pinch pots, coil pots, soft slab building, firm slab building, sculptural techniques, stains, slips, glazing and firing. Lots to cover but foremost we'll all have fun playing with the clay. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
