Pickled Watermelon Rinds : Cauldrons and Crockpots

Pickled Watermelon Rinds : Cauldrons and Crockpots | Foodie | Scoop.it

I like watching people test for good watermelons, because it makes them look crazy. I know this, because I do it, and people look at me like I’m crazy. I learned the knocking technique from an Israeli woman who claimed to be the ‘queen of vegetables’, who would bustle around the grocery store, knocking on watermelons until she’d delightedly find the right one (about which she’d then shout across the store in her loudest voice, deafening those around her and embarrassing those who were with her).

Casual: Thus Ate Zarathustra

Casual: Thus Ate Zarathustra | Foodie | Scoop.it

There’s nothing like the discovery of an unknown work by a great thinker to set the intellectual community atwitter and cause academics to dart about like those things one sees when looking at a drop of water under a microscope. On a recent trip to Heidelberg to procure some rare nineteenth-century duelling scars, I happened upon just such a treasure. Who would have thought that “Friedrich Nietzsche’s Diet Book” existed? While its authenticity might appear to be a soupçon dicey to the niggling, most who have studied the work agree that no other Western thinker has come so close to reconciling Plato with Pritikin. Selections follow.

MS Delta Hot Tamale Trail | Introduction

MS Delta Hot Tamale Trail | Introduction | Foodie | Scoop.it

Better known for its association with cotton and catfish, the Mississippi Delta has a fascinating relationship with the tamale. The history of the hot tamale in this area reaches back to at least the early part of the twentieth century. Reference to the Delta delicacy appears in the song “They’re Red Hot,” which was recorded by legendary bluesman Robert Johnson in 1936.

Natto Culture in Japan and Asia 納豆

Natto Culture in Japan and Asia 納豆 | Foodie | Scoop.it

Is Natto unique to Japanese culture? It turns out the answer is No. If you do a little bit of research on this fermented bean, you can find a whole array of members of the Natto family in Asian countries. There’s even a “Triangle of Natto” in Asia which has three location points: one in Japan (Natto), another in Nepal (Kinema) and the last one in Indonesia (Tempeh).

Scotch Broth

Scotch Broth is a traditional Scottish soup. Originally the broth would have been made using whatever ingredients were available at the time or whatever the family produced. Most commonly this was meat, cereals and vegetables. This may explain why there are so many recipes for the soup. Often the broth would have been the main meal of the day rather than as a starter as commonly seen on many menus today.
