Fermentation is one of the oldest methods of safely preserving food without the need for chemical preservatives, however the benefits of consuming fermented foods extend far beyond just a means of preservation.
During the fermentation process, vitamins and minerals are not only preserved but in many cases are enhanced in their content and made easier for our bodies to absorb. The benefits of consuming fermented foods for gut health and healing are widespread and eating these foods is a perfect way to support our gut microbiome which plays an integral role in our health.
Fermentation is inexpensive and easy to do at home and there is huge satisfaction that comes with cracking the lid on a jar of something you have made from scratch, to be enjoyed year-round or shared as gifts.
