Highlights From Last Week

Deanna said, “I used my Parisian Sourdough Starter to make a savory monkey bread. It came out great. I also made Erin’s no knead sourdough bread – great, and crackers – great. Easy to use starter, having fun trying new recipes.”

About 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 let’s share!

    Im happy tofind your blog. I started my first kraut yesterday. I used a plastic lid to cover the cabbage. Then used a plastic clear container that i put a 5lb. Bag of flour and a 4lb bag of sugar. Today it has made over 2″ of liquid covering everything. Im happy but my concern is using plastic instead of glass. Do you think itis ok? Hpoe to hear from you,Sally Sandwith. Thanks

    Total newbie to culturing food. I want to make a kefir drink, maybe with a little stevia and fruit juice? How would that work out? Any pitfalls with the stevia and/or fruit juice? Thanks in advance.
