I eat fermented veggies for my gut bugs but up until this week, I bought them. Now after making my first jar there's nooooo going back. Sooooo many combinations. Sooooo much fun. And soooo soooo much cheaper.
Friday Question: Do you like fermented veggies?
Pickles and beets are the only ones we have had...ReplyDelete
Pickles are yummy. I never tried fermented beats but they sound like a fun idea. Thanks.Delete
I'm sure I wouldReplyDelete
So yummy. Hey, great gingerbread house and picture of gingerbread house! So fun.Delete
I make sauerkraut on a regular basis. SO much better than what you get in the store!ReplyDelete
I started with kraut. How yummy. Do you ever add spice to yours? For my first batch I did. Next batch I'll try without. See which I fancy more?Delete
There has been quite a lot about fermented vegetables in various magazines, article etc. Apparently they have been popular across cultures for centuries, but fermenting has made a fashionable comeback as a provider of 'good' bacteria that contributes to a healthy digestive system.ReplyDelete
If you can make your own, I think you are onto a winner!
All the best Jan
Once I got sick sick, like real sick, I started to use good gut bugs against bad. Best move I ever made.Delete
Do you enjoy things like kraut?
Kraut is very good ...Delete
All the best Jan
Recipes please. Pretty please with fermented vegies on top.ReplyDelete
I'm just learning and one of the two jars I made this week were a no go. But ... here's the book that I'm reading and I love, love, love this book.Delete
The Art of Fermentation by Sandor Ellix Katz. Fastinating read.
There is one lady on YouTube that I love as well. I will go look her up and email you here name, I don't know it offhand, but I learned a lot from her.
Every once in awhile my grandfather used to buy a big honkin' jar of sauerkraut and eat it right out of the jar. Didn't even bother to put it on a plate. He just got cravings for it.ReplyDelete
I like your grandpa. I eat mine out of the jar too. I cannot help it.Delete
Do you enjoy eating it?
Not me, no. Only once in awhile, maybe a wee bit on a reuben sandwich or something.Delete
I eat something fermented every single day. 👍🏼ReplyDelete
What do you fancy?Delete
Spice? No spice? Some spice?
Do you make your own?
Only know Pickles IVy ! and my mom love them !ReplyDelete
I love KimchiReplyDelete
Me too. But I've only eaten vegan kimchi. So yummy. Do you like yours regular spicy or extra spicy?Delete
Very cool that you're doing this. But then I'm not surprised. You are the queen of experimentation and homemade goodies.ReplyDelete
Thanks. Got it from my grandma. She was the true Queen.Delete
Not even cabbage????Delete
What is the difference in fermented and pickled. I eat pickled pickles, pickled beets, Kimchi, kraut, etc.ReplyDelete
Great quesion and I'm still learning but from what I understand, my fermented veggies have live bacteria where in pickling, the bacteria is killed. However, if heated my fermented veggies, or even put them in a stew, the bacteria will still die.Delete
I'm still learning. Hope this helps.
PS: Jarred or canned stuff are safe to store room temp but ferments, once they reach the right place, are stored in the fridge or underground, in a root cellar or somewhere cold.Delete
But both are great ways to extend the life of our veggies and fruits.
P.S. your "test" page said not availableReplyDelete
Thanks, Granny Annie - I posted on my blog yesterday but removed the post and republished it on G+.Delete
I don't think I've ever eaten any....ReplyDelete
I don't think I've ever eaten any besides pickles.ReplyDelete
Vegetables can be fermented?ReplyDelete
So much fun!
I think the only fermented vegetable I've had is sauerkraut (unless pickles count). With a predominately German population around here, I think it's pretty popular. One of the nearby towns even calls its yearly celebration Sauerkraut days. But I've never really liked it myself.ReplyDelete
Oh my gosh, I'd love to taste sauerkraut days. There's a German fermenting vessel that's supposed to very good, too. But I haven't looked into pricing yet.Delete
Happy Sunday to YOU!
love pickles and sauerkraut...ReplyDelete
They are yum.Delete
Happy Banana Bread Weekend !!!!
Fermented veggies--YUCK! I hate it all. They just stink too much for my nose to let the food pass to my mouth.ReplyDelete
I don't think I've ever had them. But I think I'll give it a pass!ReplyDelete
Raised Polish and now with my Japanese Family I have always ate pickled veggies and some fermented. Love them all.ReplyDelete
Polish, Hungarian and Ukraine. So we always had them as well. And yet ... this is my first time making them. Even though I was raised on homemade. What took me so long, I have no idea. But there's no going back now.Delete
