There were only rumors and legends about this combination. So there it is- officially unmystified.
Healthy lazy gourmet.
This is the best short turn method to preserve freshly cooked food:
- easy to make at home with no special procedure
- jars are used( no contact of the hot food with plastic)
- vacuum sealed( naturally by itself from the heat difference while cooling down)
- not sterilized
- keeps the qualities of freshly cooked food for up to 2 weeks
- gives a chance to diversify your menu, or to have a day without cooking
Coming up with a name for those appeared to be a real problem. First the name came as “quince balls” which naturally kinda explain what they are. “Quince energy balls” was also circulating around, but then an enthusiastic friend made a cynical remark that those balls look quite “hairy”.
The name “Quince hairy balls” immediately stuck.
That`s when things began to get out of hand. In the next days serious questions began to pop up- like “who`s QUEEN”, “what balls” and WTF am I even talking about.
Trying a simple explanation that those are just QUINCE( you know) balls made out of SCRATCH only complicated things further.
So… A new approach for naming those bastards was urgently needed, into the direction obviously of simplifying it back to the core.
No sugar, no oil, no knead.
As the song goes:
“…No, no, no
You don`t love me
And I know now…”
Slow cold-fermentation in refrigerator creates an unbeatable flavor and gives up to 4 days to choose a convenient baking time. Also the dough is quite versatile- different breads like chiabata, focaccia, baguettes and mekitzi can be made with it.
