    I’ve got’ Nourishing Traditions’ by Sally Fallon and also ‘How Can I be Prepared with Self-Sufficiency and Survival Foods?” by Isabell Shipard. Both terrific books and heaps of fermented foods info and recipes in both. :tup:

    I’m a brewer and baker by hobby so all your fermentations happen there. Cheese, yogurt, buttermilk. Made kimchi, kefir, kombucha, and pickles, the list goes on.

    Sadly buying at the market a lot of these items you don’t get true ferments or health benefits. You get comercial factory quick and dirty soaks in vinegars or vinegar additions like with saurkraut, pickles, buttermilk and so on.. Well worth doing it the natural way with living organisms.

    I also have Wild Fermentation the book and its a good read.

    I never got around to making my own proper garlicky pickles like from a proper New York deli but still plan on it if i can find some proper hierloom cukes that make proper pickling fruit instead of salad/eating fruit. Have to find a little old Polish lady to help out me thinks 🙂

    Hells bells the books I have that I forget about……..I need some more book shelves quite desperately I feel.

    Another wonderful book with a section on lactic fermentation is The Gardeners and Farmers of Terre Vivante Preserving Food Without Freezing or Canning.

    I had a salad for dinner the other night topped with preserved or fermented lemon (can’t remember which it is :blush: ), and kimchi. It tasted fantastically wonderful. :tup:

    I still haven’t tried a homemade fermented cabbage (you know that ‘s’ word that I can’t remember how to spell :laugh: ). But I will when I get around to making some, I bought some organic ‘s’……. but thought it tasted ‘orrible. Home made stuff though usually has no comparison to bought, even if the bought is organic, imo.
