We are excited to be collaborating with Kate Payne, from The Hip Girl’s Guide to Homemaking. She has some pretty cool ideas in her book and on her blog including, how to host a food swap and a number of cool recipes like red onion apple jelly and pickled brussels sprouts.
Today, she is talking about fermenting. If you haven’t already explored fermenting, you should. It’s an easy way to preserve food. Fermented and cultured foods are rich in probiotics, enzymes, vitamins and minerals enhancing the nutritional benefits of whatever it is you are fermenting. Read more about the nutritional benefits here.
We sent Kate our one gallon (128 oz) widemouth jar, available in both CT and Lug. (Wondering what the difference is between the two… read this.) Check out what she fermented and enter yourself to win a case of one gallon widemouth jars & lids for your own fermenting project.
If you need some help getting started with fermenting, here’s some tips from the National Center for Home Food Preservation and from Phickle, a blog about fermentation. We also dug up a few recipes to inspire your fermenting efforts:
