Not Martha

almost daily photo: Mar. 31st

[Swan potato starch]

Whenever I bake I end up making last minute trips to the grocery store for one ingredient or the other. This time my dough for the Jar of Stars needed to rest over night and in order to get it made I needed to make a late night trip. While there this packaging for something else entirely caught my (tired) eye.

daily photo thing update: Today I’m finally posting a backlog of photos all at once and renaming them “almost daily photo” because I’m no good at keeping up with stuff and, as it turns out, I’m really not good at keeping up with stuff when I’ve put a set of artificial rules on myself. So I’ll try to post a photo a day but if I’m busy or got nothing I won’t. I mean, I don’t want to start resenting my own self, right?

    I would have totally stopped and taken a photo of this — love this packaging. And, coincidentally enough, I’ve been so into these colors lately — longing for spring, I suppose.

    Your “almost daily photo” title cracked me up. :D

    I have had this same phone picture stored on my camera for about a year now. I love this packaging. I think what I love best is the color overlay on the body of the swan.

    Nice pic! But actually, this is a great substitute for corn starch and many Japanese cooks, including Harumi Kurihara, Japan’s answer to Martha Stewart, swear by it. I have some mixed with Ponzu sauce right now, in fact, to throw in with the bok choy. It thickens faster (and thicker) than cornstarch, and is said to be great for deep-frying.
