Fermenting, a lost art that is now resurfacing in popularity, has literally changed my life. Has it changed yours? Few things are really life-changing, you know, but the process of fermenting simple foods into high-enzyme, high-probiotic live-giving creations has helped turn our health around in a way that not much else has.
I had first read about fermenting from the health cookbook that started it all for me: Nourishing Traditions. It seemed so intimidating at first, and it was a while before I was brave enough to try it on my own. Eventually, after learning a bit more, I became comfortable with the process and now really enjoy it. We’ve usually got something fermenting over here on the countertop or in the pantry. Weird, yes, but not really… not if you go way back. It’s an ingenious historical method of storing food.
I will never forget how unsure I was getting started, and so I want to share these 15 EASY fermenting recipes with you. They are all simple, and for the fermenting beginner.
The best way to start fermenting is just to start fermenting. 🙂 So try some of these out and watch your body thank you in the process.
