Welcome, Wardeh! It's great to have new faces on the forums, and I know much less about fermented foods than I'd like, so this is great! Thanks so much!

My German Grandmother(Oma) used to practice edible landscaping through the depression and the second world war and had jars and crocks of harvest in her basement as a matter of course. The fermentation book looks interesting.

This sounds great! Trying to upgrade my diet and general health. While I have tons of experience with canning, freezing and drying, have never tried fermenting.

Shelley - posts in this thread don't count. You need to post anywhere else in the cooking, food preservation, food choices forum. The more posts you make, the more chances you have of winning, so ask questions and join in discussions as much as you can.

Anyone can win (except me) but you must also be signed up for Paul's daily-ish email, and all winners must respond within 24 hours of being notified.

The Complete Idiot's Guide to Fermenting Foods sounds right up my alley.
I'm already growing 'things' in my debris mounds...so it would be nice to be able to have fermented foods in my refrigerator that are not science projects.

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone! I'm sorry I missed yesterday's questions (chasing them down now...) My internet went down yesterday afternoon and just came back up this morning.

I went and picked the two winners. One of the two was not in the daily-ish email, so they don't get a book.

That leaves congratulations to:

ken peavy

I have emailed Ken to find out who referred him to permies so that person can get a book too.
