Isn't culturing fun? I remember when I got my nutrimill...I sat there, with squinted eyes, rubbing my palms together...just looking for something to grind!
Today, I made a big batch of sauerkraut and ginger carrots a la Nourishing Traditions. I have a new sourdough starter brewing as well as some water kefir, and traditional milk kefir, and a new batch of kombucha brewing...
Now, it's all about the cultures and fermenting! Hmmmm...what else can I ferment???? I'm having fun working with these different things...and what a healthy pass time it is :P
If you are making baby steps towards a healthier lifestyle, you should really consider working with some of these live cultures. They are easy to maintain, inexpensive and the health benefits are phenomenal ;) Having a "living kitchen" is a wonderful example to your family as well :)
