COOKING TIPS

KIMCHI. Kimchi is a wonderful fermented staple in Korean cuisine and has the reputation of being one of the world's healthiest foods. Our friends at Short Mountain Cultures have been making a host of fermented foods, including kimchi, for years now. All of their ferments are made exclusively with locally-grown produce, fermenting in small batches using glass or ceramic crocks. Their Kimchi is raw, unpasteurized and naturally probiotic rich! If you are wary of the spice, you can always use less kimchi, or after the dish is cooked, add a little sugar to help balance out the spiciness. BEANS. The White Bean & Kale Panzanella is perfectly delicious made with canned beans. However, in case you have the time to cook dried beans, we are including an heirloom variety from Rancho Gordo... the "Marcella". This Italian white bean is named after the great Italian chef Marcella Hazan and makes for a wonderfully creamy bean. However, they do need to cook "slow and low" for 2-3 hours.
