Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
This is a comprehensive guide covering fermentation (with anaerobic-specific recipes) AND a wide array of nutrient-dense companion foods that make up a healthy diet. All the recipes are gluten free. Information on sourcing your best bets for real food as well as detailed, traditional recipes covering everything from bone broth, salads, meat, eggs, seafood, veggies, dehydrator to treats. This is a collection of my best tried and true recipes.
This is a conveniently sized, spiral-bound 6 inch by 9 inch softcover book that lies flats while you brew up your next ferment. This book will save you money. No more wasted failed ferments. Make you own real foods with probiotics and correctly balanced vitamins, minerals and enzymes and see your supplement needs quickly decrease!
You can’t compete with real living food when compared to processed (even minimally) probiotics. Who knows if the probiotics supplements are even still alive? Were they shipped under refrigeration? Are they just sitting there at room temperature in your home? I bet there isn't much life left in them….Make you own and feel assured that you are getting those good bugs where they need to go.
The focus is on anaerobic fermentation. These recipes will work with any truly airtight anaerobic jar system (except for kombucha). Each recipe provides a clear explanation of temperature, duration, salinity, and technique recommendations, as well as an extended Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) section as appropriate for each type of ferment.

I do really appreciate the information on lactofermentation but other than that, I think this book is way overpriced. I would possibly pay around $20 total including shipping but definitely not the $40 with shipping that I paid.
I appreciate Lisa's work and time. I think the price needs to be adjusted as well as the book better proofed for spelling mistakes. With these two changes, I think it could help the sales grow.
If the idea of fermenting your own foods kinda freaks you out (and it does some people), then let Lisa guide you with this book about all the steps you need to make it happen. She's just like you--a hard-working mom trying to help her family eat as well as they possibly can to preserve their health in the years to come. Real foods-based Paleo eating is something you've probably heard more and more about in recent years because of books like The Paleo Solution, Practical Paleo and others. Lisa believes this way of eating and the lifestyle involved with doing it makes fermenting a very natural and normal part of what it takes to reach your health goals.
I appreciate that Lisa made this book spiral-bound so you can keep it open to the page you need while you're making that particular recipe.Read more ›
Here are just a FEW reasons why I love it:
The book itself is gorgeous. From the layout, to the fonts, to the photos...really, this book is some serious eye candy.
It makes you feel good just looking at it. Even the real food and fermentation newbie will feel a sense of peace and calm just looking at the book. It really does give you a "I Can Do This" energy. (Sounds a little woo woo but I am totally serious here folks!)
Lisa does NOT assume that you know your way around a real foods cookbook so she takes the liberty of addressing the ins and out of properly using this book. Everyone should read it. It will help you get the most out of the book.
The required reading section on ferments and the process will put you at ease! If it is your first time fermenting or your thousandth time fermenting, Lisa walks you through it step by step.
The recipes are classics, updated. If you are looking for some crazy exotic recipes, you aren't going to find them here. Lisa has created a cookbook of recipes that HEAL and NOURISH the body. These are recipes that will give you a solid foundation of health.
The recipes are easy to prepare and use ingredients that you can reasonably acquire.
There is a wide variety or recipes, guaranteed to please any palate. While not everything will be your cup of tea, I am positive that there will be a lot of recipes you will add into your rotating list of favorites.
You really can't mess Lisa's recipes up. She provides clear directions in an easy to follow sequence.
And the list could go on and on and on....
You are missing out on something special if you pass this up!

I love the recipies! But I thought the whole book was about fermentation. There were other non-fermenting recipies too, which I'm not interested.Published on October 24, 2014 by Grandmom
