Brad Makes Fermented Citrus Fruits | It's Alive | Bon Appétit

  • Published: 22 August 2019
  • Bon Appétit’s Brad Leone is back for episode 54 of “It’s Alive,” and this time he’s fermenting citrus fruits! Brad tries his hand at fermenting kumquats, lemons, limes, and blood orange to give your average citrus an It’s Alive kick. Work them into vinaigrettes, top your squid salads with them, or get creative! The world is your oyster, whether you pronounce your oyster condiment mignonette or “min-yet.”

    Join Bon Appétit Test Kitchen host Brad Leone on a wild, roundabout, and marginally scientific adventure exploring fermented foods and more. From cultured butter and kombucha, kimchi and miso, to beer and tepache, learn how to experiment with fermented and live foods yourself.

                    its really odd that there's a lot of hidden bitterness directed towards babish just because vinny decided to leave on his own accord and chose to work with babish. not to mention the select few who say babish is doing all things wrong in cooking when cooking often has a "figure it out" element even when you're learning how to cook yourself or from someone else 🤔

                    like, damn, don't interact if you don't like what's going on now. 🤷🏽‍♂️

                                  I just don't get the appeal of Meyer lemons. They're bland. When I want lemon, I want puckering acidity.
