The Complete Idiot's Guide to Fermented Foods by Wardeh Harmon

10 out of 10 acorns

Where to get it?


Don't let the title put you off, with over 100 recipes and great explanations about the science of fermentation this book has it all.

I've been fermenting a our family favorites for a while now, but this book inspired me to try a couple of new things, which turned out great. I found the book easy to read and always interesting because of the tips and pointers. The recipes can be made in the amounts given or doubled+ for bigger batches. With 320 pages it covers all the fundamentals and tools to make fermenting a snap for anyone.

This is a good fit for anyone interested in permaculture, preparedness, natural methods, or just wanting to get more delicious raw foods into their families diets.

Brief Contents Overview:

A first look at fermentation
What's in it for you
How fermentation works
The fermenter's Toolbox
