The Pleasures of Fermenting Foods yourself
Fermented foods have made a big comeback recently and for good reason. They’re packed with flavor and health benefits. My parents used to ferment kimchi when I was a kid and I grew up enjoying the powerful tang and spice that kimchi provides, so I’m happy that these foods are becoming popular again.
I’m also pleased to learn that what I thought was just something tasty is actually very good for you. It’s a rather easy, inexpensive, and fun way to include a variety of probiotic bacteria in your diet. These foods keep for a long time and once they’re prepared they’re very easy to include in a meal. There is something deeply satisfying about producing your own food in this way, and many ferments included her are ideal for an omnivorous, vegan, or raw diet. What more could you ask of a food?
