We adore foods that are as tasty as they are nutritious. At totally cultured we achieve this by going back to traditional recipes and then bringing them bang up to date for the modern world.
All of the Ferments we make here at totally cultured are traditionally ‘dry’ fermented, which is also referred to as wild fermentation. This means that we do not add water or starters to initiate the fermentation, we rely on the natural yeasts and bacteria that exist on the cabbages and in the air. They do all the hard work for us – what we do is provide the right environment for these good bacteria to thrive.
As your product is ‘alive’ do not worry if you find bubbles in it or at times a fizz or even a bowed lid. These are perfectly normal and in no way a sign of the product having gone off. Those lovely bacteria need to breathe remember.
Products will keep best in the container in the fridge where they can last for several months if you leave them that long. Don’t forget this was our original way of keeping vegetables through the long European winters before we had canning or refrigeration.
Delicious fermented lemons, try cooked with roast veg or chicken. Also tasty in a salad.
