saltyseattle I replaced 1/2 of the water in the tortilla dough with eggs. It made them so soft and cakey and ethereal, I can't believe it's not more common. In fact, I've never seen it beyond some crepe-like masa cakes that also have the addition of wheat flour. Have you? The rest: lamb shoulder marinated in toasted cumin, coriander, cinnamon, clove, cardamom, garam masala, turmeric, ginger, coconut milk, and yogurt, then ground with the marinade and pan-fried in bacon fat with crispy shallots. Served with yogurt-coconut milk raita, cotija, & veggies. I may have missed #tacotuesday, but these were worth the wait. #tacos #lamb #carnero 4d
  •   motoridersd Interesting!! I need to try this! 4d
  •   dustincalery I use half masa and half four in my breakfast pancakes. So good. 4d
  •   moschef @saltyseattle it is common actually. But not used as tacos. Sonaran style of flat enchiladas are made with masa harina, egg, baking soda, water. You can add cheese to the dough as well but that is not common. 4d
  •   vwgurl80 Eh.. 🌮 Every day!! 4d
  •   seatownjules Do you use the whole egg in it? 4d
  •   saltyseattle @seatownjules whole eggs, but may experiment with just yolks next time. 3d
  •   seatownjules Thanks @saltyseattle, I'm going to try it. Do you have a good source for more flavorful, non-GMO masa? @happyflagday let's do this. 3d
  •   saltyseattle @seatownjules my favorite masa harina is from purcell mtn farms (organic)- if you order it online it shows up within a day or two. Let me know what you think! 3d

saltyseattle This mold is traditionally used to make Ukrainian vareniki (varenyky)- think a regional variation on pierogi. Given that I'm a crazy pasta-phile, however, I repurposed it to make this unique shape but with stiff egg yolk dough (as opposed to softer sour cream dough) filled with three braised meats, spinach, and ricotta. #lastweekend #pastaoftheday #pastafattoamano #pastafattaincasa #pasta #pelmeni #vareniki #varenyky #pierogi #agnolotti #feedfeed #eeeeeats #homemadepasta 5d

saltyseattle Bottom pic shows how vibrant the hand-shaped paccheri pasta stays, even when cooked. Definitely a keeper of a pasta dye, that red cabbage juice. (For full details, look two pictures back in my feed.) #homemadepasta #paccheri #pastafattoamano #pastafattaincasa #pasta #eeeeeats #feedfeed 1w

saltyseattle Handmade paccheri pasta. You've probably seen machine-extruded paccheri, but to roll it by hand is something I've always wanted to do, so today I gave it a go. Each individual tube gets rolled and pinched closed around a dowel, then dries on the dowel in order to retain its shape. I think I may finally have found the right way to get the purple shade I'm after- the squiggles are pasta infused with red cabbage juice. #pasta #pastaoftheday #pastafattoamano #pastafattaincasa #paccheri #homemade #feedfeed #eeeeeats #foodart #foodarts #cabbage #cavolo #cavolorosso 2w

saltyseattle Scrappardelle: pasta made from leftover bits of other pasta, preferably on a nasty weather day when all you wanna do is stay in and stuff yourself with pappardelle. 2w
  •   detrishious Awesome! Thank you. I was thinking about getting one and had remembered when you got it, and posted about it on here, I can't believe it's been that long! 2w
  •   fattostrano That's amazing! @saltyseattle 2w
  •   saltyseattle @englishnorman good question! They do not fade at all because they are plant-based, not dye-derived (although dye does come from plants often). I felt the faint purple was too faint to begin with, tho, so working on making it darker. 2w
  •   saltyseattle @detrishious it seems like yesterday! Aah, time... 2w
  •   englishnorman That's cool @saltyseattle. I was wondering if they were like purple carrots or broccoli where the color dissipates when they hit the water. Your pastas are inspirational!! Did you see these @ztastylife? 2w
  •   ztastylife @englishnorman si! Linda and i have know each other for a while! I love her amazing amazing pasta skills!!! 2w
  •   willtaff @saltyseattle I'll start the water boiling! 2w

saltyseattle Working on nailing purple pasta through a combination of beet & spirulina. Not vibrant enough yet, but getting there. The agnolotti are filled with potato, ricotta, & chioggia beet. The green strips are kale-dyed, and the yellow have a little added turmeric but are mostly just yolk. Pasta infusion is a great super-secret way to get a lot of hidden vegetables into meals. #pastafattoamano #pastafattaincasa #pasta #agnolotti #barbabietola #kale #ricotta #beets #eeeeeats #feedfeed #colorful #happyplace #happyfriday 2w

saltyseattle 100% egg yolk spaghetti with blistered tomato sauce, lemon-basil oil, and a weeping ball of burrata. Classic combos may be clichéd, but they sure are delicious. #burrata #yolkporn #semolina #woodfired #basil #delizioso #buonissimo #feedfeed #eeeeeats 3w

saltyseattle If these aren't the most adorable lemons you've ever seen, you need to check your cuteness meter. They're called Pink Lemonade Eureka Lemons, & I'm gonna candy them 'cause they so dandy.

saltyseattle Huevos rancheros, because, crazily enough for this time of year, my chickens and ducks are giving me more than a dozen eggs a day and I'm out of pasta flour until next week. Thus I'm stretching to come up with egg-rich dinners- help me, people! Lay your favorite eggy foods upon me, dudes. 4w

saltyseattle My #2015bestnine is so well-balanced. The pizza food group, the pasta food group, the sweets, the ramen, and the grill group. A little gratuitous egg and some verdant green, and I've got a food pyramid every good glutton can be proud of. Question to you fellow best-nine participants: were most of your nine natural light/summer pics? This dead of winter only being able to get a decent pic of daytime prep shots thing is killing me. #happynewyear #pizza #pasta #homemade #hope2016ismoreofthesame #happy #love #life 1mon

saltyseattle Santa brought me an industrial pasta sheeter that makes in 10 minutes what my old machine made in an hour. @jonasnicholson built me a pasta hanging curtain situation to go with my new toy. Sooo, impromptu pasta course thrown into the mix this afternoon. Happy, happy girl. 1mon
