  • A Basic Sauerkraut Recipe

    Many years ago, a woman at my church told me I could make sauerkraut in jars. That was a new idea and I was intrigued by it. I love sauerkraut, and I thought I couldn't make it at home because I didn't have a cellar. But every attempt to make it turned out bad. It wasn't until I discovered Fermentools, and the instructions here, that I successfully created my first batch of lacto-fermented sauerkraut. If you want just a basic sauerkraut recipe, here it is--done the right way.

  • Is Lacto-Fermentation Safe?

    I remember the first time I made sauerkraut. No one told me the importance of keeping the cabbage under the level of the brine. Nor did they share the importance of ambient temperature. Consequently, I ended up with a mess. In fact, I ended up with a mess after several attempts. Then, after discovering Fermentools, I learned the proper way to make sauerkraut. But the fears caused by my prior failed attempts were real. In this post, Michelle discusses those fears and helps you to see why they are unfounded.

  • How to Make Sourdough Naan

    Have you ever tasted the samples at Costco? Most of the times, I have great resolve. But occasionally, I'm lured in to purchase something not on my list. Such was the case with the naan. After trying it, we were hooked. But, as Michelle brings out in this post, it was not the healthiest option. I cannot wait to try her recipe for whole wheat, sourdough naan with yogurt. It has to be even better than the Costco variety.
