Tannins are an essential ingredient in making fermented pickles. Tannins are astringent, naturally occuring phenol compounds that keep vegetables crisp. The tannins prevent the cell walls from breaking down, leaving a crunchy pickle. Add a couple fresh grape or raspberry leaves, horseradish leaf or even a tea bag to your brine for a crisp delicious pickle months from now. We are still eating our fermented pickles we made in fido jars this time last year, they've never been in a fridge just stored in a cool dark place, and they are delicious! What are you fermenting?

Hey fermenty friends! I haven't been very active on social media but I am still here answering messages and fulfilling orders. I've been working hard on a HUGE project and I needed to step back and take a break for awhile. I'm taking some time to slow down, enjoy the nice weather, be present with my kids and be out in nature as much as I can. I see we have a few new followers and I just want to assure you I am here!

*EVENT CANCELLED PLEASE READ*

I've been having major technical difficulties with Facebook these days and I take that as a sign to take a break from it. I cannot edit the event for this coming Sunday and Facebook has been so glitchy I can't even see if anyone has registered. I am canceling the event. If you registered and paid please contact me for a refund or private tutorial. Sorry for any inconveniences.

On the left is a sourdough starter fed right after coming out of the fridge. On the right is a sourdough starter on its 3rd feeding since coming out of the fridge. It pays to feed multiple times before baking bread.

Sometimes I make oatmeal for a late night snack. I like to add yogurt to it for a tangy twist. Last night I tried the long viili and it was wonderful. It's texture paired really well with oatmeal. How do you like to eat your yogurt?

Long Viili is a mesophlic yogurt often found in Finland. It requires only room temperature fermentation, no heating milk and no yogurt maker. Long viili has a beautiful long, stringy texture and a mild, slightly sweet flavor. The starter is reusable and will last indefinitely if taken care of. It's as simple as adding starter to a jar of pasteurized milk and leaving on the counter 12-48 hours and *boom* yogurt!

We are experiencing long shipping times. We send out fresh cultures via xpresspost, used to be 1-3 days but its taking 7-10 days on average. The cultures are very hardy and will be fine but if they aren't I do guarantee my cultures and will replace them. We do wish there was something we could do but its out of our control. Please be patient and know these cultures are strong. Thank you for your patience.

Hi! Excited for my first batch of Jun, and I was wondering if you have a pH level range that you would recommend for finishing F1?
😍
Hey do you have any cultures for coconut yogurt?
I'd like to order some viili starter. But I see three things that are similar. Viili, Piimä, Filmjok (I don't know this word.. I think it's Swedish). Can you tell me what the difference is between them? My Mom would make viili to drink sometimes.. but used the viili starter, not a piima starter.
How does one know when bulk fermentation is complete? Is your bread supposed to double? Or get bubbly again? It’s been 5 hours. Not sure if I deal with it tonight or bake in the am :)
Is this sauerkraut still ok to use? Is this just Kahm yeast?
Come like my page "My Life After Sugar / Ma vie après le sucre"...The 600th like will win a free viili yogurt culture!! :-D
I've been on milk Kefir for just over a month. I'm down a pant size, and I've been bouncing with energy each day. I messed up the schedule for fermenting to didn't get my morning kefir smoothier yesterday and wowsers did my seasonal allergies come back with a bang. Got my smoothie in this morning and my symptoms are subsiding again. Who else has a story to tell like this about ferments? I've shared the grains with some friends and even my MIL, who is sharing at the senior's manor and getting the seniors healthier!
My kombucha is ready to be bottled. I can't recall the ratio of juice to tea for bottling. Also do I add sugar? Using 5.5 cup bottles.
