Brad Makes Fermented Citrus Fruits | It's Alive | Bon Appétit

  • Published: 22 August 2019
  • Bon Appétit’s Brad Leone is back for episode 54 of “It’s Alive,” and this time he’s fermenting citrus fruits! Brad tries his hand at fermenting kumquats, lemons, limes, and blood orange to give your average citrus an It’s Alive kick. Work them into vinaigrettes, top your squid salads with them, or get creative! The world is your oyster, whether you pronounce your oyster condiment mignonette or “min-yet.”

    Join Bon Appétit Test Kitchen host Brad Leone on a wild, roundabout, and marginally scientific adventure exploring fermented foods and more. From cultured butter and kombucha, kimchi and miso, to beer and tepache, learn how to experiment with fermented and live foods yourself.

                            I am glad I came across BL videos. Whomever the cameraman and editor is for these is hilarious. I am loving the pop culture references and comments to what Brad says.

                                                The puffed up bags of fermented fruit remind me of one time when I left a bag of prepackaged apple slices in my backpack and it became a little pillow full of fermented apples. I was very confused because I wasn't aware at the time that fermentation produced gas.
