Sauerkraut Flu Fighter VII

Ok so you all know I’m nuts about flu fighter sauerkraut by now don’t you? They are no brainers for me, and while it seems like a lot of kraut to make for one person (I’m up to about 6 litres in 4 weeks) bear with me as I explain why.  For a great low…

Golden Sauerkraut

This is a stunning ferment and so easy to make you’ll wonder why it’s taken you this long to get around to making it. **Fresh turmeric will stain your hands and fingernails so be prepared for yellow hands 😉 Ingredients 1/2 green cabbage 1 tbsp caraway seeds 1 finger of fresh turmeric Salt Method Slice cabbage…

Rooibos and Chamomile Water Kefir

I’ve been making water kefir for a few years now and while I said ages ago that it’s not my first preference when it comes to ferments, it has been slowly sneaking up the ladder.  If you have experienced adrenal fatigue like I have, you will know that caffeine is our enemy. While it will…

Koffucha

I had heard a lot about this fermented drink but not being a coffee fan had over looked it – until now. And guess what? I think I have a new addiction! There is something very decadent about this ferment and I haven’t figured out whether it’s because it tastes so very different to any…

Water kefir with kick

Water kefir has to be one of the easiest ferments I make. That and beet kvass. I didn’t use to like water kefir and put it on the bottom of my list for ferments. Not now! Once I understood the importance of adding black strap molasses, bi-carb soda, crushed egg shell and lemon that is.  …

Lacto fermented Zucchini

This sassy summer ferment is one of my regulars. Living in the tropics, even in our ‘coldest’ time of the year, it’s still pretty warm. A taxi driver in Brisbane recently laughed at me when I told him the coldest it gets in Darwin might be 14 deg celsius and even that would be very early…

Dragon fruit coconut milk kefir

This has to be one of the most lush coconut milk kefir combos  I’ve tasted yet! Pure and simple, it’s just straight up fermented coconut milk with chopped up blood red dragon fruit and nothing else! Yep that’s right, nothing else added! Can you believe that? The pot above has the exact same ingredients as the…

Fermented Flu Fighter

I got knocked down bad by a flu earlier a few months back, and when I say bad, I’ve not had anything like it for years. Fevers, shivers and no energy at all left my moving from the bed to the couch and was no fun at all. The shite of it is that I…

Vegan coconut milk kefir

I’ve got lots of friends who are vegan and vegetarian and consider myself to be a flexitarian 🙂 and enjoy loads of yummy fermented food as medicine. However, I’ve been caught in the trap of many other dairy intolerant fellow fermenters and been conflicted at having to rest milk kefir grains in dairy without knowing what…
