Preserved: Condiments - Darra Goldstein, Cortney Burns & Richard Martin
Condiments have been at the heart of food preservation for most of human history. In fact, the word itself originally referred to any substance that prevented food from spoiling. But condiments have outgrown these utilitarian beginnings, and now hold the power to transform the humblest of dishes into something revelatory. Imagine adding a fiery and aromatic zhug to cool yogurt to make the ultimate saucy accompaniment to grilled meats, or a vibrant ruby-red horseradish to serve alongside tinned fish at your next picnic. Faced with end of season tomatoes, why not make your own ketchup? A little less sweet, and with a lot more tang, this version is bound to replace whatever bottle you have in your fridge.
Elevating the unsung culinary heroes to star status with stories, history, and showcasing recipes for delicious sauces, spreads, relishes, and chutneys, Preserved: Condiments brings a world of flavors to your kitchen and depth, spice, and interest to your cooking.
