Have you read lately about the benefits of naturally fermented foods? Not only are the probiotics in these foods excellent for the health of your digestive tract, fermented foods are also easier to digest because fermentation helps break down difficult to digest cellulose in vegetables, which means that if there are certain vegetables you avoid because they seem to bother you, it’s possible you can enjoy them again once they’ve been fermented for a few days. Rather than losing nutrients in traditional preserving methods, fermenting your vegetables actually raises the vitamin content! Fermented foods are flavorful and, when stored in a cool place, will keep for up to 8 months, which means that you could be enjoying the produce from your garden or local Farmers Market all winter long!
