Beef Tongue cured with spices for a week. Then braised in the oven for about 4 hours. Then cool in the liquid. Later to be peeled and sliced.
And a jar of sauerkraut I made a long time ago and just found in the back of the spare little fridge. Along with a jar of homemade mustard. Kismet.
Mixed Bone Broth with turkey wings, beef shanks, pork ribs, celery, carrots, parsnips, onion, garlic. All roasted for a few hours then simmered for 8 hours into a deep stock.
100% Rye Noodles with an egg, some ground caraway, mustard powder. Cut much the same as soba. Now the burning question is whether when all this comes together I should melt some swiss and add a squirt of Russian dressing. WHY the hell not?
