What do kimchi, sauerkraut, yogurt, and miso all have in common? Not only are they delicious, but these foods are also all fermented. Kirsten Shockey, the co-author of several books on fermentation, joins us today to share some of her knowledge on fermented food. Shortly after her family began growing their own food twenty years ago, they turned to fermentation as a means to preserve what they were not able to immediately consume. This soon expanded to fermenting foods for its many health benefits. Kirsten and her husband currently teach classes and workshops on fermentation.
In this episode, Shockey shares a few of the many health benefits of fermented foods and assures us that fermenting foods is easier than we might expect. After listening to this episode, you might feel inspired enough to try fermenting your own vegetables! Learn all about the fermentation process from Shockey, and hear what benefits that fermented foods can provide for your body.
