Do you remember my attempt to ferment Egyptian Onions? I promised to let you know how it turned out. This morning I opened the jar:
You can see the two rocks and the wild grape leaves in there:
And here are a few of the cute little fermented onions!
They are crunchy, mild and a nice little nibbly. I think I will save them and put them on the table for a special occassion. Or, if I can't resist, I might just nibble them away one at a time. Here is the conversation I had with my DH this morning:
DH ~ "What is that?"
Me ~ "This is the fermented Egyptian Onions I made a while back."
DH ~ "Are those rocks?"
Me ~ "Yep."
DH ~ "What is THAT?"
Me ~ "Wild grape leaves. I put them in there to hold the onions under the brine."
DH ~ "Oh."
Me ~ "Do you want to try one of the onions."
DH ~ "No."
Me ~ "Why?"
DH ~ "I'm going out in public."
Me ~ "A coward dies many times before his death..."
DH ~ "A brave man dies only once."
So.... a glimpse at life in my neck of the swamp. :-)
