weekly cultured gathering: August 10

blog gathering

Welcome to the Weekly Cultured Gathering! We’re here to share and celebrate our adventures in food fermentation. From recipes to tips & tricks to food preservation – cultured foods are as old as food itself.

Maybe you eat cultured food because of the health benefits. Maybe you make it for the art and science involved. Maybe you believe that this age-old practice of souring dough, culturing dairy, brewing beverages, and fermenting vegetables is wonderfully sustainable. Maybe you feed them to your family because of all of the above.

Whatever draws you to the art of fermentation, this weekly gathering is a place where you can find others working towards the same goals as you are. It is a community.

So please share what’s culturing on your counter. Have a new recipe? What’s your favorite ferment right now? Why do you eat cultured foods? What have you learned that might help others?

    Trying dill pickles and raw-milk yogurt for the first time this week. Yogurt is now chilling, and the pickles have at least a couple more days until they’re ready. I want to use some of the yogurt to make tzatziki, which my husband loves! I’m waiting for some water kefir grains to arrive so that I can try that, as well.

    I’ve been making kombucha and milk kefir for a while now. I recently switched to continuous brew for my kombucha. My new favorite way to drink it is mixed with “glow juice” (equal parts orange, apple, and cranberry juice).
