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

  • Published on Aug 22, 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.

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

    ☑️ It's high in protein
    ☑️ It's vegan
    ☑️ It's delicious
    ☑️ It's nutritious
