The book’s layout is good. It covers all the important topics, even the history of the practice. The illustrations were a nice touch (I’m a stickler for visuals). I like that the book stresses that need for a sterile environment when fermenting foods, and I the general guidelines are useful. I like that the book has listings of fermented foods people are already eating (some of I was unaware). But, I would have liked more recipes or a bit about how the common foods are actually fermented. The recipes that are in the book are pretty awesome (one for sauerkraut in particular I want to try). But, my personal preference has me wanting more info on how to use fermented foods in everyday recipes.
The book is a very easy read, and it’s complete, covering fermenting since its use in ancient history to modern day uses. The history section was quite thorough, but not at all excessive as the remainder of the book moved into modern day fermenting techniques, health benefits, and recipes. The author includes some reviewed studies as evidence for the positive benefits of eating fermented foods.
It’s an ideal ebook for anyone interested in learning the basics of fermenting, the health benefits of fermented foods, and some easy recipes to try. The recipe instructions are easy to understand, and the writing in general is well written. I recommend this book if you want to start looking into adding more fermented foods into your diet. The book is a good stepping-stone to your research on the subject.
A few comments to the author:
1. Most people do not know what the word anaerobic means (I do because I am a bio major). Define it when you use it.
2. I am getting weird results when I search for ``fermenting release valve`` that has nothing to do with fermenting foods. Maybe you could look into this.
Not only are they delicious but they are nutritious and offer tons of probiotics which are really important for digestion and body well-being.
I used to not think twice when grabbing one of these items off the shelf, but really liked the idea of finding healthy and easy recipes to make these products at home and on my own terms. Knowing exactly what went into the jar and how it was processed from start to finish.
This book is terrific, I have learned all the how to's as well as the what not to do's and the proper materials to purchase in order to process these foods at home. Definitely a great guide that I'll be referring to often!
Hats off to the author for writing an easy to understand guide for fermenting foods in your own home. The process itself is described in plain English, so you do not have to be a scientist to understand what is going on. There is also a brief look in the history of fermenting foods, making it clear that this is not some new trend set by celebrities, but dating from the ancient times.
You will also find valuable information on how to start fermenting foods by yourself, at your own home, and of course what are the common mistakes that can be made. And to top this great guide off, there are a couple of recipes to try out! Great eBook!
Fermented foods are everywhere, but store bought are not as beneficial to your body as homemade. That’s why I was glad to see that the author also included some recipes to start fermenting foods at home on your own, and mistakes to watch out for.
All in all, it is a great book to keep around to reference all the helpful things that fermented foods can provide.
