Tuesday Twister

Real-food blogger Wardeh is hosting a Tuesday Twister Blog Carnival, the purpose of which is to share through words and pictures what we’ve had going on, twisting, in our own kitchens this past week.

Here is my recap; can’t wait to see what everyone else has been up to!

1) Sprouts. Expensive to buy, ridiculously inexpensive and easy to do at home.  This has been working well, so I bought a couple of half gallon-sized sprouting jars with screen lids and loaded up on radish, mung bean, alfalfa and red clover sprouting seeds.

2) Local bounty. Check out the fresh bay leaves!

3) These titles have been in heavy rotation lately.  I gave away my TV 3 years ago, so now I have lots of time to read.

4) Working on a killer dry-rub for local, grass-fed steak.  This is espresso powder, raw cacao and powdered Worcestershire.  A little bitter this time, but promising.

5) Fried sauerkraut.  Like potato latkes, but made with homemade, salt-fermented sauerkraut.  Also very promising.

6) Cornbread.  Real, honest-to-God organic, non-GMO coarse yellow corn, fresh corn kernels, buttermilk and homegrown peppers.  I wish you could have been here to smell it when it came out of the oven.

7) Wild Blueberry Bannock. Soaked flour, kefir, water, baking powder and fresh blueberries. Big success.

8) Moroccan albacore-stuffed yellow tomatoes.  Another big success.

9) Black quinoa and roasted red pepper purée.  Really good.
