The joys of lactofermentation

I had a pretty productive weekend, and took advantage of the extra day and my returning energy to get a bunch of stuff done.
So, this weekend, my childe and I:

watched three movies
made low carb “tortilla”chips from Cleochatra’s recipe at the  Lighter Side of Low Carb

made 1 gallon of pickles using the recipe from “Wild Fermentation”
also did a quart jar of sliced pickles

canned 10 quarts of tomatoes
canned 5 pints of plum jam

sewed 5 jumper-style dresses for work (for me)
added an online store to this site and Amazon book widget (I broke the store tonight; have to get my friend to fix it, lol)
Listed a bunch of books for sale on Amazon
Took pics of my old clothes that are still in good shape and got them ready to list on EBay
blanched, vacuum sealed and froze  5 bags of pattypan squash

made stock from the Big Bone
added more food to the food storage tracker
barbecued (actually… grilled, and the Old Man did that, we just made the sides…well, he made the potato salad)
I am getting closer to the energy level I used to have.  I am thinking about ordering more cod liver oil, maybe another food based supplement.  Definitely more liver

I checked on the pickles tonight and they are fermenting madly!  I can smell the garlic and dill and can’t wait to try them!
I have really enjoyed Wild Fermentation and plan on trying more recipes from it; I will post pics and results as I go along.

  1. I think it is so amazing that you can foods. That is something I really want to learn how to do. Having access to my own homemade spaghetti sauces all year long would be beyond wonderful!
