Summer downtime is the perfect chance to get fermenting, even if the heat means that everything bubbles like crazy!
Check out these 4 recipes for some easy yet delicious ways to get some probiotic action into your kitchen this Summer.
This recipe comes via our Fermentation teacher Gillian Kozicki. It’s absolutely killer, especially if you feel about salsa the way we feel about salsa. Perfect for your summer garden haul.
As taught to us by Sandor Katz. Young country wine is a simple ferment composed of fruit, sugar, water, air and time.
With the help of the naturally occurring yeasts on the skins of fruits or berries, these simple ingredients can be transformed into a delicious good-time brew…
Here’s another of Gillian’s specials. It’s spicy, it’s sweet and you can use up all your errant bok choi in one easy sweep with this one. Goes with absolutely everything.
This yummo probiotic soda requires very little effort, minimal waiting time, and is just asking for some experimentation with the huge range of flavours you can work into it.
As said above, Summer is a great time to learn to ferment because there is so much gorgeous produce around, but bear in mind that things will ferment quicker in the heat!
But then, if you’re around for a week or so, that’s fine. All the better to regularly taste and learn as you go. You’ll soon get the hang of it.
Happy Summer fermenting, all!
