This recipe is inspired by attending a fermentation workshop with Trish Dent. Fermenting foods is a way of preserving foods but also a way of converting starches and sugars into lactic acid by Lactobacilli bacteria (good bacteria) and inhibiting bad bacteria. This helps promote a healthy intestinal flora.
