If you recall, back in my first post about the vinegar found here, I mentioned briefly that vinegar had a mother and that I had discovered the existence of a delightful little

Well hello there world, time for a new blog and some new adventures. I’d like to invite you to join me as I undertake what I’ve aptly called “The Fermentation Project”. It’s exactly what it sounds like, I’m going to see if I can figure out the magical world of cooking by microbe (doesn’t that
