Make your charcuterie board the star of the show on New Year's Eve with festive cocktail pairings and delicious treats!
Really, this is my hubby’s project more than mine, though I’ll help in any way I can. We took two trips to a great store in our neighborhood, the Homebrew Exchange on Kilpatrick in the Kenton neighborhood of North Portland. It’s a great little store, and they have everything you need to make your own beers, kombucha, wine, cheese, soda – basically anything that requires a culture or serum. I took some phone photos there, but I’m not totally sure they’d be cool with me bringing a real camera into the store (or maybe you guys would? Lemme know).
So we walked away with about $50 worth of equipment – a glass 1-gallon jug, a food-grade plastic bucket for sanitizing, four brown 1-liter bottles, ale yeast and the spices above (at AMAZING prices, I might add. I won’t ever buy vanilla beans at a grocery store again.)
Based on the ingredients above, any guesses as to what Dave is making? Here’s a hint – you may not know what the roots make based on their name, but you would definitely know by their smell.
