Poemomm's Thoughts

By poemomm

I’ve been craving lox. When most people say ‘lox’ they don’t mean gravlox, they mean smoked salmon.

Having grown up in a Jewish family, bagels and lox is the comfort food of my childhood.

A few days ago I decided to create the elements for an authentic Bagel-n-Lox.

This is as close as any smoked salmon recipe I’ve ever tasted.

Enjoy with my Real Cream Cheese and Authentically-Onion Bagels.

it should read one-eighth teaspoon of smoke flavouring (I fixed it) - it's a flavouring, and it's not technically raw that I know of, but it provides the essential flavour to the lox.

liquid smoke is a condensed extract of smoke, made using a funnel to condense the smoke from a hardwood fire into a liquid form (they collect the drippings). Not raw by any stretch of the imagination. :-)

You could... but it wouldn't be the same at all. The difference between this recipe and other "sour creams' or "cream cheeses" that you see is the probiotics. You'll get a tangy, sour cheeze by using an acid, but it won't be lacto-fermented... and it won't taste really and truly real. :-)

OOOOoooo! I want to make this but can I substitute the ume vinegar with anything? I'd love to use my kombucha vin.

Well as long as the bulk is raw. A small addition for flavor sake won't kill us once in awhile, right? Look at most of the vanilla's on the market. We do love our vanilla.

Dumb question time. Why is liquid smoke not raw? I'm sure it's obvious but for me and others who may want to know.
