We have been busy micro-farming lots of little bacteria and yeasts. Here are some of our most recent adventures:
Carrot,beet,cabbage, burdock-"kraut". Nice sweet-sour flavor
Brusselini ferment (like cabbage kraut but with Brussels sprout tops instead).
One of 2 crocks full of green cabbage sauerkraut. My friend Mercedes and I had a preservation day so we could combine efforts and socialize. We will hopefully be continuing that trend.
New experiment here: lactofermented chutneys. This pear version is less than a day old. It will sit out for one more day before I move it to the fridge.
Apple chutney. We did two quarts of this.i hope it's good because I'd like use up some of our apples.
Neal is making apple cider vinegar from apple cider. It should be almost done.
Oatmeal porridge. The oats soak for 24 hours before you cook them. It is supposed to be sour.... We will see how it goes.
Neal continues to tend the sourdough starter. I want him to diversify and start making sourdough crackers in edition to bread :)
Cream cultured with piima. Turns more sour than whipping cream but less sour than store bought sour cream.
