Your Body Will Do A Happy Dance! 28 Jan 2014
By Sondra G. Oravetz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Packed from beginning to end with lots information on the why's and then the how's of eating and making fermented foods. I have made sauerkraut and the fermented salsa so far working with both a brine and then the whey method for the salsa. The salsa tasted like regular fresh homemade but with a pronounced tang. So far I've only managed to get 2 weeks of fermenting on my cabbage before I've run out of jars in the refrigerator and have to break into another 3 liter jar that is fermenting (3L will hold approx. 3 heads of cabbage shredded and packed) - it's that good. Have to make more and faster.

Side note for information sake. I've been making my fermented foods in 3L glass jars with the bale and rubber gasket method that I learned about on MOFA (Maine Organic Farmer's Assoc.) and figured it sounded like a less expensive and easier way to go rather than spending big bucks for a fermenting crock. Check them out and you decide.

The only recommendation I can seriously make about buying the book, is to buy the book, skip the e-book download if you are really serious about using this information. I bought the e-book and have been about to pull my hair out on a few occasions using it on my iPad. The pages DO NOT CORRELATE correctly with the numbers so finding a page is very difficult, search pages do not go to the correct page or read it with a pen and make notes. You will want to refer back and forth when you are reading descriptions of recipes, making Simple Brine, etc. and try to find them, eeeeck! Buy a used book because you probably will be using it enough that it will be fairly used and loved before you know it anyway and only slightly more than the e-book.

Great book, full of tons of information, easy to read and understand.

no need to feel intimated about eating or making your own fermented foods for health. This book explains everything in simple easy to understand language, I have done several recipes all of which were easy and F. And, they are yummy as well. my fav is the fermented berry jam....on muffins or biscuits would be excellent. I enjoy in yogurt with berries. a good first book!

Terrific book! 24 Aug 2013
By Dr. Jonny Bowden - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Deidre Rawlings really knows her stuff, something I found out first hand when she designed the recipes for our latest book, "The Great Cholesterol Myth Cookbook". People on our side of the nutritional aisle have been singing the praises of fermented foods for decades, but up till now, most people don't know much about them or how to use them. Not any more. Deidre's new book will completely sell you on why probioitcs are one of the most important elements in your diet (whether from food or supplements or both). More importantly, she shows you how to make fermented foods a part of your regular diet in the most painless and delicious and convenient way. I highly recommend this book!

A Valuable Resource 11 Sep 2013
By K. Z. Stacey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
All we ever wanted to know about fermented foods we can now understand. What are they? Why should we eat them? Can we make them? How? Can we buy them?

Some facts from this book: Digestion, the ability of the body to absorb and assimilate food, is key to healthy cells. Eating fermented probiotic foods promotes good digestion. Beneficial bacteria in fermented foods fight off non-beneficial bacteria and thus help to support our immune systems. Many common diseases including gastrointestinal disorders, allergies, asthma, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer, eczema, fibromyalgia, kidney stones, obesity, sinusitis, and more may be addressed effectively with fermented foods. Kefir, kombucha, tempeh, yogurt, sauerkraut, kimchi, miso are fermented foods which provide a multitude of health benefits and can be found in grocery or health food stores.

Follow the beautifully illustrated recipes in this book to enhance the nutritive properties of your favorite foods. I recommend it both as a health food book and cook book.
