Is fermented food suitable for children?

What children particularly enjoy, you can find in the chapter children's ferments. The benchmark for sorting into this chapter is my son, who has tested and evaluated my ferments from age 2 on. I will gladly forward any objections.

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!

Mach’ Deine Hausaufgaben

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 for fermentation I left the name of the person I originally wrote it down for - you know who you are ❤️
