Gotta get the munchkins up and ready for school, but I wanted to quickly share Week 2's Culinary Challenge since fermentation takes, well, time. This week I challenge you to unite two good things: healthy bacteria and healthy vegetables. Pickle some cukes, make your own kraut, or dive into the spicy world of kim chi. Whatever you do, clear a small space on your counter and prepare to be amazed by the transformation that can occur in just a matter of days.
Good luck! Also, don't forget to send a week 1 update to christy DOT spackman AT gmail DOT com by Wednesday at midnight so she can compile a fun recap of last week's adventure with yeast. (I felt totally exotic as I made my poolish, did you?)
