Today I spent the morning with Alchemist-san.
Speaking of what we are doing, we are experimenting on how to reproduce the tastes from my past life.
Normally the Sisters would be the ideal ones to approach if you want to reproduce the taste of a certain food since they are the ones who are more experienced with food.
But this time, the alchemist is the perfect person for my goal.
- This might seem abrupt but do you remember the first thing I ate since my reincarnation?
It was white, well-rounded, soft and flabby, and filled with plenty of nutrients.
Yes, it was a caterpillar.
From the cave that we once lived in, caterpillars were relatively easy to get by digging into the wall.
I suddenly missed it's taste, but after finding and eating one of those caterpillars, it had somewhat thinned in flavor, I mean that there was no depth to its taste.
Why is the taste different ? I can only tilt my head and wonder.
However, if I were to really think back on it, it feels like the caterpillars I'd previously caught had about the same taste. At that time I did not think too deeply about how they taste or especially care because there were not many options to eat like there are now. The difference is much clearer now that my tongue has had experience with more food.
- - I wonder why that is, exactly.
When I use the 【Old Demon's Wisdom】 that I had obtained from the old man goblin, it seems he had given the caterpillars a special poison that was diluted. That old man goblin knew【Goblin's Poison Arrow】.
Doing so adds a mellow taste to the caterpillar, it seems to become delicious and thicker similar to trout.
In other words, that means that what we were eating at the time was not an ordinary caterpillar.
If poison is required, the Sisters would be out of their expertise if certain rituals are needed.
Although they would be able to create basic medicines and medicinal sauces, poisons are unreasonable for those fluffy ones.
That is why the alchemist who was skilled in that production process, was singled out.
In order to reproduce such a such a taste, I had used a mortar made from Rembara stone that has a surprisingly long history as well as a【Rising Drug Efficacy】, grind up a liquid made from an "India" tree found in large forests. Added to that was was some kind of TatekineI Emotion use herbs, several kinds of poisonous plants that have been sun-dried for a few days which are native to the neighborhood, "Wild Anxiety Ansebi Leaf", "Spine Asakusa Igurashisa" roots and "Isshi real Isshimi" fruits. All of which were ground together into a paste.
This mixture is a traditional magic item that the oldest person in the clan we were born in, 【Goblin Community of Small Devils】, has had to take over the production of over the years.
Previously the old man goblin has chosen his favorite as his successor but since old man goblin died, nobody had used it, leaving it stored in a warehouse, forgotten.
If you only look at its effects, there are plenty of better items available so there was no reason not to store it in the warehouse.
At the moment though, I will try to reproduce the effects with another tool to be able to replicate the effect in a wider range so I need to pull it out of the warehouse.
For the next generation we will know how to use it, even if we do not use the poison itself, we should try to explore our options in case we need something else in the future.
Anyway, I was there to advise the Alchemist, and continue to occasionally help with the work.
Although the poison can work comfortably on me because it has no effect on me, I believe in gob grandfather, but the preparation was quite difficult, if one mistake was made in the formula then it would just end up being fatal.
Anyway, it took a few hours of struggling while adjusting the amount of water poured in.
There were plenty of failures through lack of experience, and we ended up having to redo it several times.
The bastard of a poison was almost impossible for the alchemist's processing ability to figure out, but she said that she was happy to try and at the same time I vowed to create a success and was apologetic.
I did not want to end up with a failure.
As I became accustomed to the process, I finally felt as if I could figure it out - it seems like it did come out as a poison in the mortar - which is apparently referred to as 【Goblin's Poison Arrow】 - after collecting it, we reduced it to a certain amount.
【Goblin's Poison Arrow】 is also possible for later use, if we mixed it with a sap with a high detoxification effect in a mortar, the poison content is lower with a "Battera".
Then a white smoke went up while Alchemist was producing a Shuwashuwa sound.
I pulled the white smoke into one place using 【All Creation】 so that it does not damage the surroundings by being toxic, so we had to add water to the mortar.
Then the white smoke was gaining more momentum.
The smoke decreased after a little while while the poison's remains changed from blue to a light blue. Reaching this point the toxicity is weak, becoming a poison that is of little to no use.
In the mean time, several dozen caterpillars were dropped in.
Slowly dripping the poison out of the mortar, a rapidly growing caterpillar was dropped in.
When the poison is almost eliminated, I removed the caterpillar and gave it a quick wash using 【All Creation】then ate it off with a crunch.
Puyo body provided a reasonable elasticity that was like a cooked shrimp, juicy and rich fluid fills my mouth.
It would be inferior to the dragon meat. Not even winning out to other labyrinth ingredients.
But it does remind me of the old days, a kind of nostalgic taste.
Since the procedure has been found, I think I will try to mass produce it and distribute them to everyone. Since it is likely that Alchemist will help with the mass production, we will have an easier time with it.
Oh, but it really is a nostalgic taste.
