This Past Week on the Blog

In case you missed them, here are a few highlights from this past week:

Lacto-Fermented Vegetable Troubleshooting: Mold – At one time or another most fermenters experience mold. It’s not uncommon, but there are ways to mitigate against it.

Making Kimchi with Seasonal Vegetables – Join Jerri as she turns her CSA loot into a delicious, spicy batch of kimchi.

Raspberry Water Kefir Granita – If you’re making water kefir then you’ll love this recipe which turns your beverage into an icy-sweet treat with seasonal raspberries.

Sourdough: Achieving an Active Starter and Why We Discard – We’re moving along in the sourdough process by creating an active starter. We’ll also discuss the purpose of discarding that bit of sourdough before every feed.

Which brings us to the next exciting feature of the CFH blog…

Tomorrow, and every Saturday, you can come share your adventures in cultured foods, link up, gain some extra views, and come together for fermentation. We’re hosting the Weekly Cultured Gathering and I’d love to see you there.

See you tomorrow!
