The “Elixir of the gods” was never sweet honey, alcohol, nor water from the holy grail. It was, as it has always been: pure olive oil. With garlic, if gods felt daring.
@prologic it is just a statement from me 😆. I love olive oil, we use it for all cooking needs. I especially like a fresh baked baguette with finely chopped garlic in flavourful and aromatic olive oil, with extra spices in it (marjoram, parsley, oregano, basil, rosemary, sage, and the like). Simply amazing.
I need to explain that the garlic and spices are mixed with the olive oil. Bite size bread pieces are dipped in it. Delicious!
@fastidious I’m getting hungry now! :-)
It’s already gone while uploading and twting:
@lyse looks yummy!
Try this one day. Fresh bread slices (like those there), toast them slightly. A thin layer of butter on both, then baby Swiss cheese and slices of your preferred ham, then add some blueberry preserves (not jam, but preserves with chunks of the fruit in it, light on added sugars, or none). Eat as a sandwich. 🤤
Oh, and I am a sucker for milk! 🙈
@fastidious My mouth is watering already! We don’t have any wild blueberries here in my area, unfortunately. But I’m sure I will find a good substitute for it. :-)
@fastidious Got some store-bought blueberries (was too lazy to properly smash them into a paste) and I approve! Now after reading your recipe I noticed that I forgot the butter, but got the salad instead. Also, I was too lazy to bring out the toaster for this (almost never use it).
@lyse woot! Good stuff!
