  • Fermented Food?

    Is fermented food primal? I have been flirting with buying a fermentation crock for veggies.

    Thoughts?

      What could be more primal than allowing the bacteria that naturally occurs on our foods to ferment them at room temperature? We make homemade sauerkraut and kimchee and it is delicious!!!!!! No refrigeration necessary, the kraut keeps for months at room temp - the original solution to the food stroage/preservation problem - plus all those bacteria are just itching to get into our guts and help keep things healthy down there.

          There was no refrigeration during paleolithic times. Food would naturally become fermented all the time. I love me some sauerkraut!

          People say I am on a "crazy" diet. What is so crazy about eating veggies, fruits, seafood and organ meats? Just because I don't eat whole wheat and processed food doesn't make my diet "crazy". Maybe everyone else with a SAD are the "crazy" ones for putting that junk in their system.

              It's very healthy!

              I miss natto... it's soybeans (however fermented, do'h) but I'm still figuring if I could ferment something else with my culture... Anyone has some ideas? I'm thinking of rice!

                  Not only 'primal', but pretty much required when the years pile on. As we age we tend to produce less stomach acid. Fermented foods help. It is the custom of most Japanese and Taoists to include something fermented in every meal.

                    Before you buy a crock, check out this VERY easy way to make sauerkraut by googling "pioneer sauerkraut." I have some "brewing" right now

                    It is so easy to make and doesn't stink up the house!

                      What is the best way to eat sauerkraut? I know that my grandmother used to cook it with pork and Polish friends have cooked Kielbasa in it, but wouldn't cooking destroy its probiotic benefits. It is okay to heat it gently? I have a jar of real kraut and I don't want to waste its benefits by using it incorrectly.

                        Pile some on your plate, insert fork. I find the fork is better than the spoon.

                          YUM! Or forget the plate! Or cook bratwurst and pile sauerkraut on top and enjoy! I bought raw red kraut this time

                              Well, meat would have become a little high if you had it hanging round, and there are certainly ethnographic parallels that suggest that people might well have put up with that or even relished it.

                              And it's not just hunter-gatherers. At one time no self-respecting gourmand would have eaten game unless it was "high". And in Scandinavia there's still Surströmming:

                              As for spontaneous, and reliably lactic, fermentation of vegetables without one's adding salt ... I'm dubious about that. And I've no idea how early people put salt to use for such sophisticated purposes.

                              But so what? Lactic-fermented vegetables certainly taste good and seem to help digestion.
