Stop bad fermentation, use the proven fermentation resources – Kimchi Power Ep.5
Welcome to the final episode of The Kimchi Power video series. In the last episode of this Kimchi Power series, we learned about fermentation 101 from the experts to jump start your fermentation adventure.
If you haven’t watched the previous episodes of The Kimchi Power series, make sure to watch them first at HungryGopher.com
In this episode, we’ll learn about “GO TO” fermentation resources from the experts to provide you with shortcuts to make your fermentation adventure easy.
My final question to the group was, “What is your “Go To” fermentation resource?”
Let’s start with Sandor Katz, the author of many fermentation books, including the New York Times Bestseller, “The Art of Fermentation”.
“I love to do research and look for information from many different sources, but I would certainly recommend my books, The Art of Fermentation and Wild Fermentation, and my website www.wildfermentation.com as good general resources.”
I own a copy of “The Art of Fermentation”. It’s full of practical fermentation resources. Also, I enjoyed reading about his philosophy about fermentation.
Jenny McGruther, the author of “Broth and Stock” and the mastermind behind nourished kitchen.com. Shared her tools,
“Wild Fermentation and The Art of Fermentation by Sandor Katz are both great resources..”
Jenny’s recommends are completely coincidental. I believe it goes to show that simple, good resources are good resources. So check them out.
Let’s find out the resources from Grace Park at Crazy Korean Cooking“.
She said “My mom and my aunt.”.
Nothing like hands on experience from the ones who have practiced the crafts for many years. I often ask my mom as well to get her know-hows to make kimchi and other Korean fermented foods.
If you are short on time, Crazy Korean cooking.com offers great kimchi DIY kits and prepared Korean food products. So check them out.
The final answer is from, Hannah Crum, the author of The Big Book of Kombucha and founder of kombuchakamp.com:
“Fermented Vegetables by Kirsten Shockey is my top fermentation go to. She has literally #fermentedallthethings and explains everything very clearly.”
If you like drinkable probiotics, check out a super simple yet tasty kombucha recipe from kombuchakamp.com.
That’s the finale of fermentation resources from the experts.
