    I’m a subscriber who doesn’t yet blog or tweet, and I’m still trying to get a grip on stumbling.
    But I really enjoyed the Wild Fermentation goes mainstream post, especially this part:

    “U.S. Department of Agriculture research service microbiologist Fred Breidt says properly fermented vegetables are actually safer than raw vegetables,”

    I’ve made pickles for many years with vinegar; these wild ferments are so much better!
