Mostly green tomatoes.
(for the full recipe, let me know if you need it, and i will provide. will be subject to a dedicated post as there are some critical steps to made it properly)
Such was the most difficult to find, went to some markets and sellers all the time tried to offer me the good ones, but I was looking only for ‘the bad’ ones. I looked a bit crazy for them I suppose.
Aside that, whatever you like, pepper, cucumbers, carrots … anything. Even fruits can be used, apples, grapes …
The red color came from beetroot, but red cabbage works also to give the colorization.
And yeah … the brine we drink.
It is like a medicine for hangover
Or we use it for cooking, e.g for some sour soups.
If the process is made properly and the right ingredients are used, is very tasty, salty and sour and a bit fizzy.
Romanian cuisine is a mixture of turkish, slavic, greek, french etc.
We have plenty similar ingredients and dishes.
The russian recipe for pickles is pretty the same. We do also cucumbers only, or cabbage only. The mixed ones I presented can be found also in Turkey and some other variations we also do (like pepper stuffed with chopped cabbage and carrots)
Tha cabbage leafs we use later to make ‘sarmale’ which is a dish very common also in Turkey, Bulgary etc (the name is different), altough they mostly use grape leafs for this (we do it also like that)
But if you ask a romanian he will never admit we borrowed the recipe
One variant (it may vary from area to area, e.g in the region of Moldavia are usually smaller, but in Transilvania they made them bigger and the ingredients may be slightly different):
I’ve never really liked tea, though I have drunk it but never regularly. But coffee – I like it sweet. For various reasons, I wanted to reduce my sugar intake, and the number one thing that increased my intake was coffee since I added too much sugar. Without the sugar it wasn’t the same… so I stopped drinking it.
Well, definetly you have to travel to Itally and/or Turkey.
Putting sugar in coffee is an abomination.
Now, it depends on you which to choose, a very strong 20 ml expresso full of adrenalin, or a flavoured one ‘made with fire on a sand bed’
In Turkey, you may find out that they don’t use sugar for tea also.
Bad british habits, very bad.
see for guidance, note that ‘sugar is optional!’
Here’s a single view from my testing TiddlyWiki (understand that the actual wiki is FOUR screens wide which would make for a huge screenshot). I used to use it to automate results gathering from Katalon back in the days when I was playing catch-up. I rarely use it these days.
You can’t reuse content without support for transclusion ( ). Transclusion is at the core of TiddlyWiki. TiddlyWiki is written with TiddlyWiki, everything you see in the TiddlyWiki UI is built using TiddlyWiki itself – “TiddlyWiki is an unusual example of a practical quine.” (Wikipedia).
I warn you now, if you try TiddlyWiki and “get the bug”, there is no cure. It’s THE most addictive REPL I’ve ever come across.
