Note from Shannon: I am pleased to bring the voices of our lovely contributors to this space every Tuesday. Please welcome Anita, CFH Customer Service Rep & cultured kitchen-keeper.
My Name is Anita, I love my job and my cultures! The best part of my job is helping others get over the sometimes daunting prospect of learning to culture foods. The most common obstacle I see is fear. It can be very scary to think about creating a living colony of bacteria and yeast and then feeding it to your family!
I completely understand. When I began making cultured foods I was fortunate to have a wonderful person to guide and assist me through the rough spots. She patiently answered my frantic questions and gave me the confidence to feed my family living foods.
It would be impossible to pick my favorite culture but I have four that are always going in my kitchen…
