I have gone off the deep end. When I do things I tend to go overboard but this is a fun crazy new level, even for me.
A few weeks ago I went to Tennessee to see what I could see about eating real food. Well, I came back with a Jun scoby (fancy kombucha scoby) and some just started Mead. Today behold the top of my refrigerator.
It is crazy fun that maybe only I will eat.

Blueberry - Cherry Soda (Day 1)
That is the first row anyway.
Our kraut, pretty standard issue cabbage only. I followed Sandor Katz's demo. I sliced up the cabbage, added some salt to taste, bruised it up good, pounded it into the quart jars with my wood mallet and rubber banded the kid cup to press it down and submerge all the cabbage. I did not need to add any additional fluids on the first day but I did notice that it was a bit low today (Day 3). The second version has spices and a bit of GF soy sauce, and a cinnamon jar holding it all down.
On slow evening we watch the airlock. Good Fun.
Lucy, our resident feline is probably not licking her lips in anticipation over anything on top of the fridge. She want me to try fish.
Here are some good links I found while researching all these lovely ferments.
