Fried Southern Dirt
Original recipe makes 8 servingsChange Servings
 1 (4 pound) White Dirt (Soft Kaolin), cut into pieces
 1 cup buttermilk
 2 cups all-purpose flour for coating
 1 teaspoon paprika
 salt and pepper to taste
 2 quarts vegetable oil for frying
Take your cut up White Dirt pieces. Put the flour in a large plastic bag (let the amount of White Dirt you are cooking dictate the amount of flour you use). Season the flour with paprika, salt and pepper to taste (paprika helps to brown the White Dirt).
Dip White Dirt pieces in buttermilk then, a few at a time, put them in the bag with the flour, seal the bag and shake to coat well. Place the coated White Dirt on a cookie sheet or tray, and cover with a clean dish towel or waxed paper. LET SIT UNTIL THE FLOUR IS OF A PASTE-LIKE CONSISTENCY. THIS IS CRUCIAL!
Fill a large skillet (cast iron is best) about 1/3 to 1/2 full with vegetable oil. Heat until VERY hot. Put in as many White Dirt pieces as the skillet can hold. Brown the White Dirt in HOT oil on both sides. When browned, reduce heat and cover skillet; let cook for 30 minutes (the White Dirt will be cooked through but not crispy). Remove cover, raise heat again and continue to fry until crispy.
Drain the fried White Dirt on paper towels. Depending on how much White Dirt you have, you may have to fry in a few shifts. Keep the finished White Dirt in a slightly warm oven while preparing the rest.

So it's a naturally occurring thing that calms your stomach?

That's neat.

Not kaolin but a "dirt" added to many grain storage bins, fed to animals, and directly  eaten by some humans
