A conversation about salting fish: How to make it and how to use it, with Newfoundlander Lori McCarthy of Food Culture Place. Salt fish, and salt cod in particular, played a huge role in Western history and remains a vital part of the culture of Newfoundland and Scandinavia. We talk about that, plus the more practical topics of how to go about salting whatever fish you have near you, as well as how best to use it later, on this episode of Hunt Gather Talk.
Season 4 of Hunt Gather Talk will be all about preservation, from drying and fermenting to canning to charcuterie, meat, fish, plants, mushrooms. We kick off the season with a conversation about dry aging, with Jess Pryles of Hardcore Carnivore. Jess is not only a barbecue maven, she's also a trained meat scientist. We go over the ins and outs of dry aging, with an emphasis on beef and venison.
