I ate the Tourshi

Tuesday night I went to Stix with Pam from Cave Cibum. She's awesome.

I really can't say anything nice about Stix so I am not going to say anything at all. Except for that we went for the $1 raw bar special and it was underwhelming, as was the coconut "mojito", and the overall experience. Bleh, yeah, I probably won't go back.

BUT the best part was at the end when Pam said "oh hey I have your Christmas present".

Nice! Who the f*ck wouldn't want a present after a mediocre meal?

Happily it was the last thing on my Christmas wish list: a jar of TOURSHI!!!

And you know what? Tourshi is frickin' delicious. Nice and briny and crisp. I was going to share it, but now I don't think I will.

Sorry. Wellllllllll, not really.

I was going to share some with the lovely June J. who keeps me in jam, and more recently, in bread and butter pickles. However I can't. I just can't. I think that I can probably talk June J. into make some tourshi though....

What the heck- everyone ought to make a few jars of this delicious Armenian treat. What else are you going to do? Go to the beach?

But what is Tourshi?

I'm so glad you like it!! And it's so easy to make, taking about zero effort, that everyone should make it :)

Mary - click on the word Tourshi and it should bring you over to Cave Cibum. Pam posted the recipe ages ago and I have been wanting it ever since.

Pam - sometimes I think that the easier things are to make, the less I am inclined to make it. My feeling is that something that easy should just make itself.

Kidding.
