When I was a young girl my dad and I would take weekly trips to the public market. Our big purchase there would always be beets, so that we could bring them home, boil and pickle them. So naturally when I saw Jill Ciciarelli’s new cookbook, Fermented I became quite excited. As I leafed through the book I was simply amazed. From the book you can expect, a wealth of knowledge on the art of fermenting, and the history behind it and a plethora of recipes that you will love.
Fermenting is all the rage these days..and for good reason! It played a huge role in saving my health, and putting my hashimotos disease into remission! (You can read more about that here.) I was beyond excited when I got my hands on this book as it gave me all kinds of new ideas.. Jill Ciciarelli fermented thing that I never ever dreamed could so perfectly aged.
I LOVE kombucha and drink it as often as I can. My habit was getting completely out of control..and burning a hole through my wallet. So its been on my to do list to try making it on my own.. BUT I have been petrified. Thank goodness for this book! Its SO thorough and has easy directions that I'm 100% read to give homemade kombucha a go! Best of all the flavor possibilities endless!
After fawning over the kombucha recipes, I found the infused vinegars. This book shows you how simple it is to make vinegar and then infuse your homemade vinegar with fresh herbs, garlic and lemon zest. Brilliant!!
Wait till you see the recipes for fermented dairy, cocktails and meat!
Bottom line..this book is amazing. Eating good bacteria is essential to everyone..and if you have food intolerances or an autoimmune disease.. increasing the amount of fermented foods eat could literally change your life.
Get your hands on a copy of this book ASAP!!!
