Book Description: 

Even beginners can make their own fermented foods! This guide includes in-depth instruction for making kimchi, sauerkraut, and pickles and then offers more than 120 recipes, using the same basic methods, for fermenting 64 different vegetables and herbs. You’ll discover how easy it is to make dozens of exciting dishes, including pickled Brussels sprouts, curried golden beets, carrot kraut, and pickled green coriander. The recipes are creative, delicious, and healthful, and many of them can be made in small batches — even just a single pint.


I love this book. It has wonderful photographs,  step-by-step instructions,  and is filled with flavor, style. and wisdom based on past traditions and common sense—the wisdom that we crave.  The authors take us from the local community and the garden to the kitchen and the table with a collection of delicious, nutritious, traditionally prepared fermented recipes.  This book is easy enough for beginners, yet diverse enough for the seasoned cook.   One of the things I liked best is that they gave instructions on how to make small batches as I don’t always can for the masses as I used to.
