No, I'm not your next فاطمة حسين, I was reading Q's post earlier and it got me thinking about vinegar... Again!
Not to expand the list of "mu7arramat", but how come
this thing is 7alal?

Speaking of Q, this book is torture. Don't read it!

Enjoy your salad while listening to:
Sade's
Somebody Already Broke My Heart, followed by Modest Mouse's Float On

Dear Shurouq-

Vinegar is 7alaal because all the alcohol in wine gets consumed and turns into acetic acid from bacteria and exposure to oxygen. Anything that has yeast and a sugar source will produce alcohol BTW. This even means bread - YES BREAD. And that's 7allal. I am telling you, whenever I bake bread (which is often) my house smells like a beer brewery ( not that I would know what that smells like ;) ).

And I have loved Sade's music since I was a teen :). You have good taste.

Lol N,
I've always had a crush on you. How about we change camps?

Judy Abbott,
Not even a hint of "vini"?

Ayya,
She's a goddess, isn't she?

MsBaker,
For a moment there I thought we were all going straight to hell for all the vinegar we've consumed. Thanks for the clarification, dear :)
You say you bake bread? How cool is that! :)

Judy Abbott said...

Q said...

Shurouq, u know what would make this recipe better? If it was Japanese! Dont change anything, just call it Japanese Salad Dressing, and Im sure ull come up with an excuse for not liking it ;P

Also, the book, according to reviews at amazon, kicks ass! And why wouldnt it? with a name like that, it must be excellent ;P

العزيزه شروق:
تاكسد الكحول ينتج عنه الخل والماد، واسم الخل بالغات اللاتينيه يعني النبيذ الحامض. ومن الطرائف لدى البعض مايقومون به عند عمليات التخليل من طقوس حتى يكون الناتج خلا طهور!
والكثير من الناس لايعلم انتشار الكحول في ما نتناوله من اطعمه وادويه، وعمليات الايض في الجسم تحتوي علي التحويلات من والى الكحول. في احد الاقسام بالعمل يقوم الاختصاصيون بالكشف عن محتوي الكحول في الاطعمه، والناتج ان انواع كثيره من الحلويات و الشوكولاته تحتوي نسبه من الكحول - ليست تلك الانواع التي يكون الكحول احد المحتويات المتعمده فيها. كما ان ادويه السعال كاقراص ال"ستربسل" تحتوي على الكحول، ولاننسى محاليل غسول الفم مثل ال"ليستيرين".
الطريف ان مشروبات الشعير التي انتشرت خلال العوام الاخيره تحتوي على نسبه طفيفه من الكحول اقل بكثير من النسبه التي تدخل اجسامنا من تلك الاطعمه والادويه التي ذكرت، الا ن هذا لم يثني البعض عن الترديد بحرمه المشروبات من منطلق ان كثيرها مسكر!

بالمناسبه، نسمع عن اناس تجمع النبيذ والمشروبات الكحوليه المعتقه ليس بهدف استهلاكها، وانما كنوع من الاستثمار او كجامعي التحف.
في احدى المهام قمت بزياره لاحد ى مناطق صنع النبيذ واطلعت على عمليات التعتيق داخل البراميل والزجاجات وكيف ان الزجاجات يجب قلبها وتغيير الفلينات اثناء التخميير وما الى ذلك كي لاتتعرض المحتويات للتاكسد لتنتج الخل بدلا من الشمبانيا مثلا.
والسؤال لهواه جمع المشروبات المعتقه التي لاينوون شربها اساسا: كيف يمكن معرفه ما اذا كان محتوى الزجاجه لايزال خمرا "نفيسا" وليس خلا "بخسا"ا؟

شادي مو الي تغني smooth operator؟

here's another:
mustard + honey + caramel sugar + lime juice + lime zest + 1 clove garlic, crushed very fine + capers + olive oil (try Lupi) white label, not green & a tiny bit of water.
Goes very well with apple & gargeer salad :-)

anything sade sings is amazing.

and i bet u only included this recipe coz u thought it's close to wine. im sure you were disappointed by mrsb's info that it aint wine after all :P

Shurouq said...

Judy,
If it "kills the throat", it must be good.

Kwtia,
Couldn't agree more :)

LOL Q,
عن الطنازة
I will not give in to Japanese Cuisine.
And about the book.. The title is a total turn off if you ask me :P

Q80 demon,
يعطيك ألف عافية.. أفدتنا أفادك الله
والجواب على سؤالك الأخير: إي

Spontaneousnessity,
Drop by MsBaker's house, I'm sure she'll have something baked for you :)

Mistletoe,

Hanano,
