Weekly Recipe:

In celebration of this Friday’s Fermentation Festival, how about some inspiration from our “Fermentation Guru,” Sandor Katz?

Wild Fermentation and his most recent, The Art of Fermentation are extremely insightful, educational, and user-friendly. Here are some tips to get you started… send us your tales and adventures!

Excerpt from Katz’ The Art of Fermentation, p.95)

In a nutshell, the steps I typically follow when I ferment vegetables are:

1. Chop or grate vegetables.

2. Lightly salt the chopped veggies (add more as necessary to taste), and pound or squeeze until moist; alternatively, soak the veggies in a brine solution for a few hours.

3. Pack the vegetables into a jar or other vessel, tightly, so that they are forced below the liquid. Add water, if necessary.

4. Wait, taste frequently, and enjoy!”
