I’ve been busy fermenting over the past few weeks and it’s truly amazing how many vegetables turn into a beautiful food, after fermentation.
I love the flavour of freshly harvested vegetables. They’re beautiful, aromatic, fresh, and full of flavour. But, many of these vegetables don’t store well. So we turn to food preservation, in order to enjoy the fruits of our labour, when the ground is cold and hard.
I’ve recently written about fermented pickles and discussed the health benefits of fermented foods. I truly enjoy eating them, so have been busy experimenting with the fermentation of various vegetables. I love the flavour of fermented foods and I love even more, how great they make me feel!
One of my more surprising and delicious ferments was with Cucamelons! The result was visually beautiful! It’s flavour resembled a pickle, with a hint of lemon.
