Raw Food Wednesday 9/07
Tonight's RFW takes a trip in the wayback machine to that distant year of 2008 when raw nigiri-zushi ruled the land...
The Oracle thus spake:
The watermelon was vacuum-sealed and then frozen. After 24 hours in the freezer, it's defrosted in the fridge. This compacts the fruit, extracts almost all of the liquid and gives it a completely different texture, taste and appearance.
The watermelon was dipped briefly in a nama shoyu & lemon juice mix. The apple base was rubbed with a cut lemon. Then the watermelon was placed on top of the cut apple and was quickly wrapped with a strip of untoasted nori, and topped with a mix of horseradish and apple cider vinegar with a pinch of sea salt.
and then... it was gone, never to be heard from again.
