I love fermenting things. Every day I'm amazed by how much food we eat that is fermented. Did you know that both coffee and chocolate are fermented foods?
Anyway, stuff I've fermented:
- (hard) apple/pear cider
- cultured butter (YUM)
- kombucha (yuck, but I still have it)
- sourdough (for bread and the world's raddest pancakes)
- kim chee
Stuff I want to ferment (but have yet to try):
- corn meal
Fermenting food is easy, fun, and, like *all* fermented foods, it's an acquired taste. I like the feeling of having billions of my little minions working tirelessly for my culinary pleasure. But I'm weird like that.
