Fermented foods hold a firm place in cuisine from almost every culture in the world. In the West, there has been a surge in the popularity of fermented foods in recent years. Fermented foods and beverages like kombucha and sauerkraut are not only delicious; they support healthy bacteria in your gut.
So if you’d like to add fermented food to your meal plan, you can buy them from almost any grocery store–or, if you’re a DIY kinda guy or gal, why not make them your own?
Fermenting food at home is becoming an increasingly popular food trend, although home food fermentation has been practiced for centuries around the world as a key way to preserve food. However, as with any food preservation or preparation method, it is essential that it is done safely.
