Welcome to another week of Fermentation Friday!
I am ashamed to admit this. I have fallen off of the fermentation wagon — I haven’t created a new ferment in over a month and a half. There are some extenuating circumstances as to why that is, that I won’t go into, but I plan to start back up soon!
But, even though I don’t have anything new, lots of other people do! Let’s take a look at some of this week’s great ferment recipes, tips, and tricks from a few of my friends!
First up, we have a HOT recipe from Melanie from Pickle Me Too. Her new recipe is for Spicy Horseradish Mustard. YUM! I love horseradish and I love mustard, so this is a win-win in my book! Throw in some chilies and you’ve got a powerful punch. This would have gone perfectly with the roast beef we had last Sunday!
Next up, we have a SWEET treat from Lydia over at Divine Health from the Inside Out. Her latest recipe for Kefir Fruit Leather looks mighty tasty and comes to us courtesy of Lisa from Lisa’s Counter Culture! This is just one of the many awesome recipes in Lisa’s new book. Makes me want to go out and buy a dehydrator, just so I can make it. Well, actually, I want a dehydrator for many things, not just fruit leather, but it’s a good reason, eh?
This recipe was posted last week, but I just now got around to reading it in its entirety and wanted to share it. My friend Jennifer from Hybrid Rasta Mama has a new recipe for Fermented Orange Rinds and Fermented Orange Juice (Two Ways). Citrus season is almost here and hopefully my health food store will start getting some decent oranges in stock in the next month or two. I can’t wait to give this recipe a try!
The post titled Anaerobic Fermentation: Our GAPS Missing Piece, from Patty over at Loving Our Guts is a great explanation of how true anaerobic fermentation can make all the difference when it comes to healing the gut. It’s a long read, but well worth it, especially if you are currently working on healing your gut and are maybe not experiencing the results that you think you should be.
I can’t remember if I have promoted this on here before, but my friend Lisa over at Lisa’s Counter Culture, recently released a new book all on anaerobic fermentation. I have yet to read it (hope to get a copy this month), but I have heard nothing but rave reviews about it. You can order it here. Or, if you want to read recent review, check out the following reviews from Hybrid Rasta Mama, Pickle Me Too, Loving Our Guts, and Rubies and Radishes. Reading through these reviews makes me so excited to get my own copy so I can get inspired!
Well, that about does it for this week. What ferment recipes did you come across this week? I would love to see what goodies others are making, so feel free to share in the comments below!
