There have been threads before with interesting contributions by CoG members, so I thought I’d resurrect it.
I’ve always loved nukazuke, Japanese style pickles, so I have decided to start making them. It will require daily care, but now that I’m an unemployed slob, I have time to do it. My jar arrives tomorrow, the rice bran will be arriving this week or early next week. This will be really good when the garden is producing too much of anything, since it gives me one more way to prepare it without getting sick of it.
Also, as long as I’m doing the fermenting thing with the nukazuke, I’ve got a sour dough starter that I plan to start at the same time.
My persimmon tree is producing fruit for the first time this year, so I plan to make hoshigaki (dried persimmons) this fall too. I love hoshigaki, but they’re very expensive, so I don’t get them often. I’m really looking forward to it, and I’ll let you all know how that goes.
I would like to try canning, but I just don’t have the space for all of the equipment.
