Soggy Sunday, Fermented Radishes & Carrots, Cranberry Cornmeal Torte


Santa's ready!
Soggy Sunday-
It has poured all day, yesterday and today. I put the chickens in late yesterday. I let them out mid-day today to stretch their legs. An hour or so out then they were soaked, and put themselves in. I closed the trap door and gave them some greens. Happy chicken dance :)


Fermented Radishes & Carrots-
I've always loved radishes , so I decided to ferment some using this recipe- Cultures for Health  I added a little dill, garlic powder and carrots. The day ferment was ok, so I did 7, much better. Really good and very mild, not salty. The brine is cloudy and radishes lost some color, but still tasty and good for the gut!



Cranberry Cornmeal Torte-
Years ago I found this recipe and it's one of my top faves, with fresh cranberries. The corn meal gives it some crunch and the dough is perfect- buttery and tasty. I made 2 tonite, 1 for a gathering and 1 for here. Easy peasy! I use butter and more about 1 cup of berries, really cover it. It's here- Cranberry Cornmeal Torte Enjoy!

Happy Christmas to any Canadians out there!

Go hosers!!!

That looks amazing! I still make your crustless cranberry pie (GF version) often - I will add this to my list. I am enjoying my yearly batch of blueberry sauerkraut and my trusty curtido!

Oh my goodness the cranberries look fabulous! Yum! I've always wanted to try lacto-fermenting radishes; you've given me some inspiration!
