The pepe salati are coming along nicely. Tomorrow I will begin the second stage of the process — the brine. The peppers and tomatoes have been pressing for 12 days now and have all but stopped producing water. I will let them press for one more day and then begin the 4 week process of brining them in a mixture of water, canning salt and white vinegar.
Welcome to Stephie O's Blog! (Formerly Stephanie's Cucina)
I am a freelance graphic designer and culinary consultant — I write, cook, recipe test, design food related print materials — if it's about food, chances are I'm all about it! I also dabble in photography and and am game to work on other design and writing projects outside the food scene. My full website is under development, but in the meantime, I invite you to enjoy my blog. I love to cook and share my adventures both at home, and on the road! I hope you enjoy!
