What did you hear? What did you say? The mind is a funny thing. When we had curious Chris in our kitchen the other day we were exploring and sharing a number of ideas and dishes. In one instance we gave him a crisp to try. He responded with fruit, but could not pin point or express the exact flavor. I quickly retorted with tart cherry. He heard sauerkraut. I speak quickly and my thoughts bounce like a super ball. No, tart cherry was my response. As my words shot from my mouth I followed with brilliant. Let’s make sauerkraut glass. And we did. Last evening sauerkraut glass made its debut. We paired warmed Dungeness crab with cauliflower steamed pudding, golden purslane and sauerkraut glass.
Oh yeah, and this morning we started work on a sauerkraut caramel. Not quite sure where that is going.
