Why does fermentation consume someone? Of all things to immerse yourself in, it's a unique activity, and not one I expected to be involved in when I was a kid. Oh well. I long ago stopped trying to figure myself out anyway.
So starts this blog. My goal with this blog is to bring the tremendous health benefits of natural fermentation back into our general culture. We've lost so much of our traditional, ancestral food knowledge, and it's about time someone brought it back - BUT IN A WAY THAT MAKES SENSE FOR OUR CULTURE.
Because that's what it's all about. If you can't use it easily, you probably won't. Fermenting food will never be as easy as ripping open a pop tart, but we can try. For the sake of our population, we need to.
So what will this blog talk about?
Fermented veggies, meats, dairy, and beverages.
Any kind of health food news or information I want to add.
Alcoholic fermentation - not that I have anything at all against alcohol, but it's a different world altogether, and probably doesn't belong in a blog about health food.
Politics - which are poisonous to being with.
Regular food recipes - there are enough magnificent blogs (many of which I will have links to) about just cooking. We love to cook to, but fermenting is my life, as weird as it may be -

So come get your ferment on!
