Do you see fermentation as an art form, science and little bit of magic? Does transformation of simple foods to super foods awe inspiring for you? Does your pantry look like a science lab? Are you passionate about the super Ks.. Kefir, Kombucha, Kvass, Kimchi? Do you enjoy fermenting your own sodas, beer, make your own wine? Does the crackling sound of your ginger bug excites you? Is your fridge always stocked with pickles, sauerkrauts, yogurt, sour cream and cheeses? Is your gut flora thriving and in love with how well you take care of it? Well, if you said yes to any of that, we would like you to be part of this fun group! In this group, we share recipes, learnings, Scooby’s, grains, bugs and lots of laughs! This is not a group to promote business or sell you anything! We meet as friends, have a good time and grow in our knowledge of the art of fermentation! Look forward to seeing you soon.. happy fermenting!
Sprouting and fermented sprouts, the miracle of life!
Nothing better to see simple looking seeds exercise the potential of life.. the expression of immense extraordinary, from something that seems so ordinary. Sprouting brings forth the nutrition potential of the seed in tremendous ways. The seed, when dormant, have mechanisms in place to hold back all the nutrition potential. They wait patiently for the season to be just right. When that happens, the entire machinery gets in motion. Nutrition becomes available in abundance and the seed sprouts.. beginning of a new life!
Sprouting is extremely satisfying as an experience, and sprouts are extremely nutritious. Still, most of us don’t sprout. There are many reasons.. first, it takes patience to sprout. It can take from 2-4 days for the sprouting to complete and everyday, you need to take a bit of care. I think discipline of any kind is difficult to implement. Then, most, of us have tremendous confusion about sprouting. Do you eat them raw, do you steam them, do you cook them, how do you cook them, how to store them, what can I sprout?
The fact is.. the process of sprouting is easy. Just requires 10 mins of your day for 2-3 days. Also, sprouts are extremely versatile and you can consume them in so many different ways. All it takes is a little bit of courage to take the first step. Just like the seeds, when they get going… it just happens. So, take the first step.. rest… it will all happen!
In this ONLINE meetup, we will talk about the art and science of sprouting. What you can sprout, how you can sprout and most importantly, how do you consume it. Do you know fermenting sprouts can make them much easier to digest, while preserving the nutrition?
I look forward to seeing you all on this meetup! Hope you are staying safe and healthy!
