Jim bought me a new cookbook after we heard the authors on the radio
Amongst the treasures was a doable looking kimchi recipe.
And after a trip to the korean market and the farmers market i went to it:
Salted soaked and drain my veg…
Then combined the flavor:
Korean red pepper flakes
Tamari (gluten free soy sauce–aka soy sauce made with so not wheat)
Plus some rice wine vinegar, garlic and ginger
And there she sat for a day at room temp, then six in the fridge.
And today we are making
Stinky tofu will ferment at room temp for 48 hours. Then it will get fried…so monday is probably rice and stinky tofu night
Meanwhile, i totally made another batch of kimchi, and have a jar saved from batch 1 for kimchi fried rice during the week.
Farmers Market today was rife with new surprises.
First i ran into my favorite white eggplants
The remnants of fig season…guavas
My favorite vendor with a huge array every week
Fresh ginger and even galangal
The nearby whole foods had dragonfruit
And my prizes were:
Sunchokes, zuchini blossoms, two kinds of white eggplant, potatoes, kohlrabi, chienese green onions, and baby butternut squash! Like super baby butternuts!
Im deep into projects with a short time horizon so wine simmered kraut with grilled sausage sounded like the trick for this saturday
I bought two each neuremberger brats, swiss brats, and smoked brats
A riesling to drink
And here goes the kraut:
One bottle of dry white wine, juniper berries, bay leaf, peppercorns, clove….and its off to simmer
And a potato and beet salad
