🌭 Today’s tip: Try making your favorite condiment.
Another pandemic weekend, just like so many other pandemic weekend. Why not give this one a little more flavor — literally? Peter Buchanan-Smith writes on Medium about how he processed a difficult life moment by making his own mustard at home: “Success or failure was beside the point. My hands were engaged, I was in full dialogue with my ingredients and my tools, and together I had no doubt we’d make something special, something I loved.” And in the end, he says, “in turning seeds and vinegar into something edible and tangible I was making my favorite condiment, but better yet it was a step forward, my own act of personal alchemy.”
So try to make your own mustard — or ketchup, or mayonnaise — this weekend. It might be a transcendent experience. Or, worst comes to worst, it’s a kitchen experiment you probably haven’t tried yet.
