Fermented Fruit Recipes
Just as you can ferment vegetables, you can ferment fruit, too. Fermented fruits are rich in beneficial bacteria that help support gut health and immune system function. Some, like preserved lemons, are traditional food, while others, like these fermented berries, are a more contemporary take inspired by recent interest in fermentation.
There are two primary ways to ferment fruit. For the first method, you'll rely on wild fermentation - or the native bacteria that are on in your kitchen and on the fruit themselves. Wild fermentation relies on the addition of salt to support proper fermentation. The second method relies on a starter culture, such as whey from yogurt or a bit of kombucha, to provide the necessary bacteria that will kickstart the fermentation process.
