Today was a great day! Woke up, made an awesome breakfast…eggs, pineapple salsa, and bacon! Then met up with Dr. Noah to pick up protein powder, and for a quick lesson in fermentation…and kombucha. Noah is a veteran and master at this fermentation thing…for sure. Happy he spent the time to talk to me, and lent me his fermentation book. Needless to say, I went out, bought some mason jars, cabbage, organic tea, organic sugar, and started my fermentation journey…oh, and I also bought a crock pot!!!!!!
Noah told me this awesome story about how he started making kombucha, but I’ll let him tell you about it in another post. :c) He gave me a baby SCOBY to start…but this baby kombucha thing (super scientific name for it) is from a lineage of at least 10 years, could be longer. I will now proudly (and hopefully) carry on the lineage! Long live the baby kombucha!
Once I got home (after shopping for all this stuff), I started cutting up cucumbers and jalepenos. I started the fermenting process of pickles, and pickled jalepenos…and I’m attempting to make sauerkraut. I used the baby SCOBY I got, and my kombucha is now in the first step of fermentation. I’m so excited! Thanks to Noah for taking the time out to tell me about this…and trusting me enough to give me the starter for my kombucha. I will update you in a week on the progress.
I also picked up a book called “Practical Paleo” that Noah recommended. At quick glance, it looked informative. After I finish “Grain Brain”, I’ll start reading that. Ahhh…what a good day! I have a feeling I’m going to be fermenting a lot of things now! haha Thanks, Noah!
