CURTIDO – SALVADORAN CUISINE Curtido is a delicious fermented cabbage relish. Typically it is fermented for only 4-5 days and then served up with the national delicacy called Pupusas. Which is a corn based / masa harina dough filled with cheeses, refried beans, pork. If you are paleo / primal pupusas are out!!
I prefer a longer ferment for my Curtido, being 10 – 14 days or longer. It is so wonderful eat just by itself or as a side dish for a meal. I love to take a little and put it into a pan of melted coconut oil and then scramble or gently fry a free ranged pastured egg in it. A great start to the day breakfast. Recipe and directions below.
