You were terrified of the funky smells taking over your kitchen…
You were worried about poisoning your family with your science experiments…
You were guilty that you’ve spent all this money on fancy equipment and how-to books, but still end up throwing out batch after batch of ferments gone wrong....
My first sauerkraut experience was disastrous (I'm talking mold monster bad). My kefir grain sat in the fridge for a year and turned pink - how does that even happen? And don't even get me started with all the milk I've wasted trying to make yogurt turn out right.
I needed them in my diet because there's no way I was going to waste money on expensive probiotic supplements or store-bought stuff. I needed the real thing, but I was so tired of moldy sauerkraut and runny yogurt.
It was when I started noticing my old health problems flare up again that I decided to get serious about fermentation. My eczema started creeping back, I was running to the bathroom with weird tummy rumblings, and my anxiety was getting out of control.
So feeling like a mad scientist, I went to work. I tool classes, learned from the experts, tried every fermentation tool imaginable, and bought every book I could find.
I developed my own systems for making the perfect kefir every time. My homemade yogurt turned from a runny mess to deliciously smooth and creamy. My sauerkraut went from moldy and foul to crave-worthy concoctions of garlic, ginger, spices and herbs.
(And I'm not going to lie. The 4 years I spent studying Microbiology in college helped a WHOLE lot.)
Once you master the basics, you'll become so confident in the kitchen that you'll be blending a kefir smoothie with one hand and brining pickles in the other.
Your kids will ask for second helpings of ferments and you'll watch their health problems disappear.
You'll feel like superwoman with your probiotic-filled meals and soon your friends will be asking you for your secrets. (I've had a few of those "I'll bring the wine, you bring the sauerkraut" lunch dates.)
