We frequently lose our internet connection (DSL) but usually just for 20 or 30 minutes. We’ve been without internet since this morning and have been told the area-wide outage may not be fixed until late Friday. I’ve discovered I can use internet on my computer through my cellphone. Yipee! I’m going to rush through this post in case there are exorbitant charges.
This is one of the best quinoa salads I have made or tasted. It features cranberries fermented in salt brine. The ingredients were:
- puréed mint leaves, Serrano chile, jalapeño, kosher salt and white balsamic vinegar
- quinoa cooked with the above mint purée in the cooking water
- fermented cranberries
- lemon balm chiffonade
- fermented garlic
- green onions
- chopped Medjool dates dusted with tapioca starch
- lemon balm leaves for garnish
The raw fermented cranberries are tart and salty, and the dates were the perfect compliment.
