Wild Fermentation, 2nd edition

Sandor Katz says,

"It is my great pleasure to announce the publication of a revised and updated edition of my book Wild Fermentation. The new edition is the result of all I have learned in the years since the book's original publication in 2003. I am a more experienced fermentation educator now, and I have reorganized things somewhat, explained them a little differently, added some new recipes, improved many of the old ones, culled out a few that weren't so great or relevant, and added lots of color photos."

This is the Bible of rotted foods. Get yourself one. Got some okra fermenting myself right now.

Interesting discussion on making beet kvass on this Australian blog: http://editor.nourishedmagazine.com.au/articles/beet-kvass.  I tried using whey from organic yogurt in the last batch I made.  It’s not nearly as good as my raw whey efforts, but I can’t get unpasteurized milk here.

Speaking of rotted foods, doesn’t chocolate require a fermentation in the process of making it edible?  To paraphrase an old song making fun of the Woman’s Christian Temperance Union (WCTU):  “Can you imagine such a terrible sight, as a woman eating chocolate until she gets tight?”
