I was rummaging through my pantry a couple weeks back and found an unfinished but open bag of cacao nibs. Sadly they had over-fermented and had the distinct aftertaste of sourdough starter. I do not like to throw things out unless they are actually “off” […]

Happy Cinco De Mayo Folks! This is a wicked addictive dressing (or dip, if you make it thicker) and perfectly quick and tasty to whip up today for your celebrations. Give it a go… you won’t regret it.

- 1/4 cup cultured juice from fermented onions
- 3 Tbsp cup Apple Cider Vinegar with the Mother
- 1 garlic clove
- 1 bunch cilantro, washed
- 1 teaspoons pink salt, according to taste
Combine all ingredients for the dressing in high powered blender and pulse until smooth or mix with an immersion blender. I like to use these Oxo Chef Squeeze Bottles for all my homemade condiments. But in all reality you might stand there with a spatula scraping every last drop out of the blender and it may never make it into the bottle. So enjoy. I did.
