Ambrosia From A Far Off Land

Table of Contents

Sensory Bounty From Afar

I had recently falling into a deep and nearly unending slumber. My soul floated as if untethered to my mortal shell. I found myself seeing myself through the countless shattered fragments of an infinite mirror. I chased after countless shards, each one a precious facet of my own self.

Eventually, I was brought back to the waking world, my inner self once again bound tightly by my iron will. I opened my one eye which was not cursed with the penetrating vision of infinite insight. I arose and found that the spirits had brought forth some treasure from an unknown land.

The illustrations on the oddly pliable vessel indicated that much joy would be attained through the consumption of the contents. Yet, when I removed the cap, I found that the contents were as nearly well sealed off as my own inner darkness. An impenetrable membrane of metal. The work of a craftsman to be sure.

It was while pondering how I would penetrate this divine shield that I noticed the pointed tip of the vessel’s cap. Ah! A hidden tool to effect the release of this condensed compound of joy.

The Substance Embodying The Essence of Smoke and Sea

When I applied my cursed eye to extract understanding of the tube’s contents, I learned that the contents were created through an amalgamation of elements:

  • The crushed jewels of aquatic life essence
  • Crystalized essence of sweet flora blood
  • Ground Earthborn Tears
  • Flakes of the Fruit of the Dark Earth
  • An assortment of alchemic powders to increase the longevity of the amalgamation

My other self that can see into past lives informs me in shadowed whispers that such a blend would serve as a great meal for my own self and that which dwells within. I had nothing which would have properly paired with such a thing, but I entreated to obtain several waif like slabs of the common person’s grain-food as well as the congealed and aged fluid of life from the horned and hoofed creatures of the pastures.

I somehow managed to control my hand… shaking from the hidden soul’s excitement of what is to come… long enough to bring the off white cream and the earthen brown slab together. Thus forming a sufficient platform for the wonder that is to color the canvas of the palate.

Experiencing The Surge of Released Essence

So what gastronomic experiences did this fusion of disparate stuffs of existence produce? If one enjoys the sensation, the taste, and the smell of the sea, then this Ambrosia of a far off land… I personally found it incompatible with my palate. The fishiness of the paste was too excessive for me.

Fish roe paste on cream cheese and crackers. Contains the essence of the ocean... as well as the taste and smell.

Beware… Do Not Use In The Chuuni Vessel!

I have thankfully not committed this folly. However, I felt it important enough to mention: do not try to process this foodstuff within the Chuuni Vessel of Pressure. Bad Things(TM) of an olfactory nature will happen. You’ve been warned
