5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent hands on book - would highly recommend - suitable for both the novice and experienced fermenter, 4 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fermented Vegetables (Paperback)
I have a number of books on fermentation on my bookshelf, but this is by far my favourite. It becomes obvious very quickly, that the authors are experts in this field, having ran a business selling fermented goodies, and the cumulative wealth of their knowledge is all wrapped up in this one book.
They cover everything, from the tools to use; tips on incorporating dehydrated veggies like mushrooms, seaweed and tomatoes into your ferments; fruit/veg that can be added which create extra brine, etc.
The majority of their book is taken up with recipes for fermenting different vegetables, e.g. nettle kraut; lemon dill kraut; kimchi brussels sprouts, etc.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good introductory book, 13 April 2015

Good introduction to making nut milks and butters, with suggestions for flavour; sweeteners and dilution rates for nut milks. It got me started down the road to making my own.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but just not good enough to justify the price tag., 14 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This machine is soooo expensive, and unfortunately I didn't think it is good enough to justify its price tag. It does a reasonable job - but I would still need to hire out a professional unit to give my bathroom tiles a proper clean.

It is also very noisy (I needed a couple of asprin after an hour of using the jet function).

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent coffee machine - drink coffee at home that rivals your local coffee shop!, 14 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great, great coffee machine. I would never have believed how good this machine could be - except that my brother bought one a year ago, and has been enjoying excellent coffee ever since. The coffee from this machine, easily beats what I used to buy from my local cafe (I can't bring myself to buy their coffee anymore, as I know I can make a better cup at home).
I had previously bought an expensive coffee bean grinder, which I used with a simple french press - the coffee made from my De'Longhi machine, is infinitely better.

This review is from: Slippery Elm Powder 250g (Misc.)
Slippery elm is a great product for lining the stomach and throat. I use it to counter-act the effects of too much acid - it couldn't do this on its own, but I find it helps (I also use wheatgrass).

3.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says on the tin, 6 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although this product was very well priced, in the end I wasn't overly ecstatic with it.

I thought the sample music CD that came with it was very poor and not suitable for my 5 year old (she is familiar with nursery rhymes; not the latest pop tunes). She used it for a day or two, but it has been forgotten and left in a corner ever since. Perhaps when she is older she will go back to it?

Apart from that, everything was in order - the machine came with all the cables I needed to connect it to the TV, and no batteries were required, which is always a plus.

This review is from: Robin Wood Tarot Deck (Cards)
I absolutely adore these cards, they are so descriptive and pretty - they make reading tarot easy. I have a number of decks, but this is the only deck I use.
