Fermented foods

Post about everything from carrying a handkerchief to manly skills (sharpening a pocket knife, etc.) to product reviews of items that may have slipped under our radar (e.g. - Grandpa's Pine Tar soap). No threads on anything "new" unless it harkens to old-fashioned sensibilities and ideals.

Fermented foods

Post by Eruannu » Thu Apr 05, 2018 2:56 am

Does anyone here regularly make fermented foods such as kraut, kimchi, kumbucha, or even beer or wine.

Not yet. Will start kraut this weekend.

I make corn beer. It is then distilled though. I've made some home brew beer and I grew up making pickles with my mom.

My wife has dabbled. Some folks from my church do.

My grape vines are just now beginning to bud. Whatever grapes I get this summer are destined for homemade wine.

Bread, leavened.

Beer.

Actually, my wife makes beer bread.

I do kombucha on a regular basis.

I used to brew beer.

I'd like to get into doing pickles, kraut and much more though. The lost art of fermentation can be fun, beneficial and rewarding! Good stuff.

Make? No.

Consume? Yes.
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not.

I'm curious does anyone use mustard seeds or the like to initiate growth of a culture? I'd like to make kanji (I think that's how you spell it) but it seems so numinus.

Same. Big fan of kimchi. I also like to take left over pickle juice from good dill pickles (or wickles) and throw some hard boiled eggs in. Not really pickling as I am cheating and not creating my own brine and pickle juice.

Sorry no help here.

I like corn fermented, however. Does that count?

I like to ferment grain mash.

I jar bread & butter and dill pickles every year but that's not fermenting.

Some day I'd like to try Surströmming. Any food that makes you vomit to eat is surely a good idea. Surely.

Yeah, really. I had a couple of friends that would stick fingers down their throats to throw up so they could drink some more, but geez.
