Alex Lewin has written a fabulous book on fermentation. This has been one area where I have been a little hesitant to venture into. Fermentation, at first glance, seems to be complicated, easy to mess up and time-consuming. Anything that seems overwhelming or that needs a lot of steps totally turns me off.

But, the way that Alex presents fermentation in his book makes me want to start fermenting everything! The pictures are gorgeous, his instructions are simple and straight-forward and he takes the guessing game out of the process. This book is EXACTLY what I needed to begin the venture into fermentation.

When I think of fermentation, my mind automatically goes to sauerkraut, right? There are actually lots of things that can be fermented. And fermentation can help make food more nutritious and digestible. It helps to make the minerals more available for our body to effectively use and absorb.

AND, Alex was kind enough to give us a sneak peek at one of the recipes! Check out his Fermented Carolina-Style Slaw (to the right) and instructions on how to make it below!


Now, doesn’t that make you want to start fermenting??? I thought so! Let me help you out – get entered to win one of 2 Real Food Fermentation Books below! And don’t forget to head over to tomorrow!
