Edible Armored Mud Balls
Purim or Everyday Fun!
Our friend, Paula, who blogs as Americana the Beautiful is on a one year road trip, experiencing and photographing the wonders, festivals and sights of the USA. In addition to her amazing posts, she shares recipes and food discoveries with us. As Paula travels from sea to shining sea in her RV, we are riding along with her, vicariously of course, but reading every word of her blog. Safe travels Paula, and hope that you pick up some new "riders" at americanathebeautiful.org.
Armored Mud Balls are the Badlands version of natural snowballs. They form when water washes down a streambed and starts to roll sticky clay into a round shape. As the ball continues to tumble, it picks up more and more little pebbles, mud and rock making layers of "armor."
Use the same principles to make your own tasty version. What a clever Purim treat for your western themed mishloach manot baskets. Add a bandana, a cowboy hat, some kosher beef jerky, and maybe a beer – and you're all set "pardner"!
