weekly cultured gathering: july 6

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?

    I made fermented garlic scapes this week, put scapes and chili pepper into a jar added kombucha and let it sit on counter –burping occasionally, to-day it had bubbled out of the jar! I tasted 1 scape and still have ‘garlic breath’

    Hi Shannon – in addition to my other potions and garden ferments, I am working on a first-time brew of rice and garlic vinegar. My husband loves on his salad the stuff from the grocery store, so I decided to save some money by making it myself. I hope it will be to his liking.
