Brad Makes Fermented Citrus Fruits | It's Alive | Bon Appétit

Pubblicato il 22 ago 2019
Bon Appétit’s Brad Leone is back for episode 54 of “It’s Alive,” and this time he’s fermenting citrus fruits! Brad tries his hand at fermenting kumquats, lemons, limes, and blood orange to give your average citrus an It’s Alive kick. Work them into vinaigrettes, top your squid salads with them, or get creative! The world is your oyster, whether you pronounce your oyster condiment mignonette or “min-yet.”

Join Bon Appétit Test Kitchen host Brad Leone on a wild, roundabout, and marginally scientific adventure exploring fermented foods and more. From cultured butter and kombucha, kimchi and miso, to beer and tepache, learn how to experiment with fermented and live foods yourself.

Brad Makes Fermented Citrus Fruits | It's Alive | Bon Appétit


  • Had it together until the Double Seal.

  • After transferring them to a jar with seal, how long do they last?

  • I miss vinn

  • Of course the limes weren't ripe. They were green. Ripe limes are yellow.

  • How amazing, hilarious, and down to earth is Brad though? I need a Brad.

  • Brad, you are a great way to start the day.

  • Just to let you know, "minyet" in Russian means BJ... lol

  • Just to let you know, "minyet" in Russian means BJ... lol

  • What about trying to candy those limes? Like old school candied citrus rind style? Eh? Eh?

  • now im craving squid salad gdi

  • Petition to have Brad's editors collab with UNHhhh

  • Get Julian Bubbles and Ricky to make pickled eggs and rum n cokes with brad

  • this footage is almost a year old?! How can we know if all the people in it aren't dead already? please don't be!

  • “That right there is what you call a 3 gram pinch”

  • Shout out to the ‘96 babies

  • Some of your viewers are old enough to remember the meyer lemon craze...

  • That feeling when you were born in 1996 and Brad just calls you out 😂

  • This man misses vinny lmao m


  • Matt (cameraman) and I are the same age XD

  • I was born in '97 and i feel called out.

  • I like that they cut out his tantrums

  • I am glad I came across BL videos. Whomever the cameraman and editor is for these is hilarious. I am loving the pop culture references and comments to what Brad says.

  • That weird SCOBY bit was hilarious! Gross!

  • "Who cares?" I CARE. Put it back! ;_;

  • Brad is the best part of bon appetite - hands down

  • Yum!

  • '[Yelled into spoon] "Bye, Molly!"' made me laugh much harder than it should have

  • I cares

  • I want him to make Russian pickled tomatoes...

  • I've sealed so many elbows in those vac bags.... it's almost nightmarish

  • The puffed up bags of fermented fruit remind me of one time when I left a bag of prepackaged apple slices in my backpack and it became a little pillow full of fermented apples. I was very confused because I wasn't aware at the time that fermentation produced gas.

  • He lowers my anxiety levels , brad u r good for my health 😜😜🥰

  • Probably one of my favourite episodes!

  • ^e^ ~g~ •k• \h\

  • *calls mother who is in the room next to me because we live together still*

  • Brad: who named it kumquat?? me: [laughs in chinese]

  • i just said wourder instead of water i've been watching It's Alive too much

  • I'd name my squiding boat Squidney

  • Wheres vinnie o.o

  • Luuuuuv this guy ❤️❤️❤️❤️🙏🙏🙏🙏

  • im 1996


  • RIP everyone who's 23 this year.


  • "Check out the brains on Brad" classic pulp fiction

  • This is the exact chaotic good, golden retriever personality type man I need in my life. 😂

  • This shade of blue is undoubtedly brads color

  • @6:48 the "slow clap" most definitely originated with the movie Lucas (1986). Come on Morrocco! Can't Buy Me Love (1987) was great tho

  • 3×15 second ads is too much, even for Brad. Don't push your luck BA. I like you guys but have no problem walking too

  • I think Brad's personality is EN?P. So that's Extroverted, Intuitive, either Thinking or Feeling (I'm not sure yet), and Perceiving. I'll figure out the T or F soon enough.

  • That was every test I took.

  • Double seal always makes me laugh

  • Bit too heavy on the special effects, Vinny.

  • “Pepped up, not depressed after a test” I FELT THIS 💀

  • Brad: Take care of your tools! Also Brad: *Gets salt f-ing EVERYWHERE*

  • Brad is pure chaos

  • Born in 71...bunch of babies!!

  • 21:49, so when are we getting our fermented squid episode?

  • all I want is for Brad, Julien Solomita and Binging with Babish to make a video all together
