Product Description

Fermentation provides abundant vitamins, minerals and healthy bacteria and has been used by humans for thousands of years for nutritional, holistic health. But today we risk losing the health-giving properties of probiotic foods as most fermentation is performed in factories, stripping away the powerful effects of these foods.

But Donna Schwenk is working to bring this staple of food preparation back to readers by showing that these now-unfamiliar processes are actually easy and fun. Even if you don't know the answer to 'what is kombucha?' fermentation guru Donna will quickly introduce you to the healing properties of kefir, kombucha, cultured vegetables, sprouted flour and sourdough. And by doing this, she opens the door to a world of foods that can help rid readers of health problems including high blood pressure, diabetes, allergies, acne, hypertension, asthma and irritable bowel syndrome.

After telling the astonishing story of how she healed herself and her family with these probiotic foods, Schwenk walks readers, step by step, through the basic preparation techniques for kefir, kombucha, cultured vegetables, sprouted flour and sourdough plus more than 120 recipes that use these foods to create dishes to please any palate.
