Are Your Veggies Living Up to their Full Potential?
Fermentation. Sandor Katz, author of Wild Fermentation, calls it “a health regimen, a gourmet art, a multicultural adventure, a form of activism, and a spiritual path, all rolled into one.”
It also boosts your immune system, increases the nutrient content in your food, improves digestion and your mental health, and detoxes your body.
All this from a simple, natural process that occurs when the natural bacteria in a vegetable breaks down the food’s complex elements into more digestible forms. When fermentation occurs, vegetables become easier to digest, allowing your body to work less, while reaping more benefits.
The best thing about fermenting vegetables? It’s a simple process that even the most novice cook can accomplish.
