Day #14 of nukadoko
The rice bran has matured. There are no signs of yeast or mold. And there is no garbage smell or acid related smell but it smells quite intense. I pickled half a daikon, 1 cucumber and 2 carrots for about 4 hours. The salt content dropped and the pickles tasted good - especially the carrots and the cucumber. I am not really satisfied with the daikon texture. Maybe I should dry the daikon for a few days before pickling. The daikon slices were somehow wobbly and not crunchy enough. I have just seen a really funny j-drama. One older guy told a young one which suffers from a little bit heartbreak syndrom to burry his sorrows in nukadoko. Therefore he gave him a ceramic pot with a lid and some of his nukadoko. The young guy burried a foto, closed the lid, and secured it by tape. Nice idea but reminds a little on a time bomb.
