Recette de la maman de madame Caroline Bindèle (origines normandes)
L’association « vinaigre – melon (ou légumes secs) » a pour origine le côté paternel de ma famille.
Du côté de ma mère, cette habitude serait liée à la conservation des aliments — Elle est issue d’une famille de pêcheurs qui partaient pendant plusieurs jours en mer –.
Nous avons testé récemment cette recette avec un bon melon, bien sucré, que nous avons agrémenté de vinaigre de cassis ainsi que de vinaigre à la sève d’érable.
Verdict : Les deux étaient très bons.
• Comme prévu, j’ai préféré le melon-cassis. Notre melon étant bien sucré, le contraste acide-sucré était très agréable.
• Mon époux, qui apprécie moins les saveurs acides, a préféré le melon-érable.
Bonne dégustation !
