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…

Flu Fighter VI

Did you know that in The Gluten Summit, 2013, Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride, MD, told Dr. Tom O’Bryan, “With every mouthful of sauerkraut you’re consuming billions of beneficial microbes which will be killing the pathogens in your gut driving them out and replenishing the beneficial flora in your digestive tract.”? If you are on a food…

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.  …

Medicinal Green Papaya Leaf Kombucha

As a dedicated health coach fermenting and foraging for food medicine is part of everyday life for me. I am always looking to my garden for what I can access as food medicine. Both my maternal and paternal grandmothers swore by papaya for good digestion (we grew up calling it pawpaw). In fact my paternal…

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…

You did what with your kraut???

Look before you berate me for possibly killing my kraut, you need to know a few things first.  I’m one of those resourceful foodies who doesn’t like to throw anything out unless it’s absolutely necessary. So when I recently had a jar of homemade fermented green papaya, chilli, turmeric and ginger over ferment and slightly…
