The searchbox comes in handy when you're looking for a specific ferment or ingredient. You can enter any vegetable, fruit, grain, spice or dairy product that comes to mind - or is waiting in the fridge for ideas. On the search results page, you can then choose which of my recipes and flavor combinations appeals to you the most.

Is fermented food suitable for children?

Was Kindern besonders gut schmeckt, kannst Du im Kapitel Children's ferments finden. Maßstab für die Einsortierung in dieses Kapitel ist mein Sohn, der ab dem Alter von 2 Jahren meine Fermente getestet und bewertet hat. Einwände leite ich gerne weiter 🙂

There are also quite a few fermented beverages, just think of kombucha, water kefir, whey, lassie, milk kefir or beer. My passion for fermentation began many years ago with my first homemade non-alcoholic ginger beer.

In a recent survey among experienced fermentistas and beginners, you told me that you would like to see pages with basic recipes and possible variations. I'm starting this series with the absolute classic of wild fermentation ➩ Voilá, sauerkraut!

Do your homework

I always find it beneficial to refresh the basics and deepen the understanding of the methods and biochemical principles. That is why I have written comprehensive chapters about different types of fermentation. I am happy if you discover something new to you that helps you to ferment more confidently and better.

By the way, for some recipes I left the name of the person I originally wrote it down for - you know who you are ❤️
