List & Recipes of 52 Fermented Foods | The Adventure Bite (1)

We love making fermented foods! If you perseverethrough a few trial and errors I guarantee you will be able to find something fermented to match everyone in the families tastes and get some of that awesome probioticgoodness in your life!

Here are a few we have done and lots that are on our “must try” list.

Update: We realized after publishing this that not all of these foods are technically “fermented foods” since some do not actually utilize yeast or bacteria, some are technically cured and pickled instead of fermented. We’ve left it as is since we still are in love with them all and can’t wait to try them!
