Fill in the blank:
I love fermentation
A bit about me:
I make my living as a master plumber on lower Cape Cod. I have entered an apprenticeship of a another kind. My other trade is Peace on my planet. My mentors now are books, articles, public radio, and souls that enter my day. I have recently picked up Sador Katz's "Art of Fermentation" and am trying new things, i.e. Sour Kraut, sour dough bread (I am pretty good with that) and am currious about Kefir. Have tried commercial versions but the real stuff is made at home, as all real stuff is. Anyway I have this dream that if I could learn to teach and share with people in my community about making more stuff at home this would be a way to increase awareness and tolerance and increase World Peace; my ultimate goal. Thank you
Latest greatest meal cooked at home:
Last night; Favorate organic vegtable of the the day, (that is to say what we have on hand) saute`d in the wok, served on a bed of Quinoa
Currently reading:
Sandor Katz "The Art of Fermentation", Leo Tolstoy," The Law of Love and The Law of Violence" Leo Tolstoy, "The Kindom of God is Within You", Don Miguel Ruiz, "The Four Agreements"
Currently listening to:

Hi, Leigh. My name is Jennifer, and I'm the HOMEGROWN flock tender (site updater and tweaker, feeder and waterer of content). I’m thrilled you found us. Your mission of making the world a better place by learning new things is exactly what we’re trying to encourage here at HOMEGROWN. We’ve got a lot of good info on lactic fermentation, on sauerkraut, and on kefir. I hope you’ll find it useful—and I hope you’ll have tips to share with the rest of the HOMEGROWN community. If you’ve ever got a question, just leave me a comment or shoot me a message. Welcome to HOMEGROWN!

Hi, Leigh: You should definitely join the Boston-area HOMEGROWN group. That way, you can post a question within that group, asking other Cape Codders to message you (or they can just reply via comment). Hope this helps—and if I come across other folks near you, I'll introduce you!

You need to be a member of HOMEGROWN to add comments!
