For a while now I’ve been wanting to try my hand at fermenting. There’s no particular reason I’ve been wanting to do it . . I just love trying new stuff. I have never even made sauerkraut, which we actually like! I bought some old crocks when we were in MO and planned to make sauerkraut and just never did.
I recently ordered several books about fermenting food and this one is, Real Food Fermentation by Alex Lewin, is the first one I began reading. The first thing I’m making is the fermented Carolina Slaw.
It all looks so good! Once I got it all mixed up and into the jars, I was nibbling on what was left over in the bowl and decided this slaw is so good, I’d make some for tonight! Of course, it won’t be fermented but it will be cold and sour and sweet and it will be delicious!
What’s in the jars will be left to ferment. What’s in the bowl will be served for dinner tonight . . and probably tomorrow too. I can hardly wait to try it after it’s fermented. We love cole slaw and I so rarely make it . . crazy!
