“Getting Adventurous” week is going great so far! It is hard to believe that we are over halfway through the Wellness Challenge! Are you still going strong?
The Best Meat Recipe Challenge to win Grass-fed meat from US Wellness Meats is still going on! Enter now if you haven’t already (or enter again, if you have!) They also sell some delicious bacon in case you have a craving for… chocolate covered bacon!
We’ve also gotten adventurous this week with Probiotic Lemonade, which is an easy way to add probiotics to your diet, especially if you aren’t making Kombucha Soda or Water Kefir Soda! (If you want to make those too, you can get the cultures for them here)
Making fermented foods and drinks has been a fun experiment for me lately, and I definitely plan to continue trying new fermented foods and drinks. Since I’m still a novice at fermenting things, I wanted to give you all access to a master so that you can learn more easily than I did… (lots of mushy pickles don’t live to tell that tale!)
Wardeh at Gnowfglins is back again with a fantastic way to learn how to naturally prepare and preserve foods. Wardeh teaches a wonderful online course that takes you step by step through the process of making fermented foods and drinks. I’ve been going through her courses lately and learning a lot! She adds new material weekly, so there is always something new to learn!
Today, Gnowfglins is offering a 6-month membership to her online courses to the winner of this contest. Her course is invaluable if you are just diving into the world of fermented foods and drinks, and it will definitely give you a head start without the learning curve (sorry pickles!)
Step Two: Leave a comment below letting me know that you signed up and naming the strangest food you ever ate!
Why the strangest food you ever ate? Before I
turned my kitchen into a science lab of random fermentation started adding probiotic foods and drinks to my diet, I thought fermented foods were strange and wouldn’t touch them. For me at that point, just trying them would have been an adventure.
Fast forward a few years, and I can’t imagine my life without sauerkraut, water kefir and kombucha, but I certainly used to think it was strange. Knowing what I know now about the health benefits of fermented foods, I’m certainly glad I started eating these “strange” foods.
Now, the honor for strangest food I’ve ever eaten would go to fried mealworms, though I don’t recommend them nearly as much as delicious fermented foods. Runners up include pickled pigs feet (eww) and alpaca cheese (strange).
Contest ends at 11:59 pm CST on Friday, August 19th. Winner will be announced in the weekly roundup!
