So, what is ūdens?

"Ūdens" is a Latvian term for water, a crucial ingredient in every recipe. Water is a transparent, tasteless, and odorless liquid that plays an essential role in cooking and baking. It is used to hydrate grains and legumes, dissolve spices and herbs, and create soups, sauces, and broths. Water also helps regulate the temperature of cooking processes such as boiling, steaming, and poaching. When it comes to baking, water is used to activate yeast, soften dough, and create steam in the oven, resulting in a crispy crust and fluffy texture. High-quality water is vital for a successful recipe, as it can significantly affect the taste and quality of the final dish.
