Lacto-Fermented foods...

It has been a long time since I posted. Pregnancy will do that to ya. Food no longer seems fun, more like something you *have* to get down you to survive. Anyway, hopefully I will be out of the woods soon with the nausea.

I had a brief respite the other day so I decided to make something I've never made before. I made Lacto-Fermented pickles and preserved lemons (those are cinnamon sticks in there.
I like them by the spoon (maybe that is just the pregnancy) :-P but you can use them in recipes too. :-)
I've made Lacto-Fermented sauerkraut and ginger carrots before and they were amazing... going to do that again next week. :-) The only downside is that I have to wait to eat them (2 days for the pickles and 2 weeks for the lemons). :-D It is worth the wait though! Lacto-Fermented food is SOOO good for your digestion and overall health. :-)

The cookbook "Nourishing Traditions" (by Sally Fallon) is a wealth of information. While I don't agree with every single thing she says, it is truly amazing. Check it out!

What is your favorite Lacto-Fermented food that you either made or tried?
