Lunar ferments

Fun with manifestations of Luna! For the first time in ages I've started a crock of cabbage to ferment and trying my hand at kefir as well. I don't think it's supposed to have them but after sitting on the table after a day or so a jar of Nancy's Kefir did have strainable grains that I've transferred to a jar of Remember When milk to see what happens. I probably should have experimented with cheaper milk but eh.

I plan to start some kombucha going too, it gets pricy to buy pre-made all the time and it is awesome stuff. If you leave the commercial stuff out it develops the scoby on the top that you need to culture more.

Ia Luna!

Good luck with the fermenting! Your a man after my own heart. One of my favourite dishes? Kimchi!Delicious and spicy! I'm one of the lucky ones who doesn't seem to be able to smell the super spicy variety...be prepared to have your guests clear the room if you ever open a jar in their presence.

Thanks! Nice to know someone beside RO is paying attention ^_^

I totally lurrrrve kimchi and that's on the "list" too. I'm trying to break out of the habit of eating every meal out and my big bugaboo is having to toss stuff out because I don't eat it fast enough and it goes bad.

But with a little salt, water, and microbial magic - voila!
