I've started venturing into fermenting my own vegetables at home - does anyone have good resources/instructions for doing so?

I don't know where you live but there is a workshop in San Jose, CA about fermenting food, I am so going. http://lisascounterculture.com/

thanks! I have learned to only eat a little at a time, especially when starting out; I'm glad to hear that you've had success!

thanks for pointing me toward Wild Fermentation - I'll definitely check the book and the website out. No problem reading through strong language.

"Wild Fermentation" is good. So is Katz' new book, "The Art of Fermentation," which is huge. I think if you're just starting then the former will probably be more helpful than the latter, provided you don't mind strong language.

The book Wild Fermentation is supposed to be a winner. Here's the website: http://www.wildfermentation.com

"Nourishing Traditions: The Cookbook that Challenges Politically Correct Nutrition and the Diet Dictocrats" by Sally Fallon awesome book I love it I started lacto-fermenting my foods.

I did it by leaving raw milk out to separate into cream cheese and whey, to use the whey as a "starter". But after further reading you can omit the whey and just add extra salt! Get the book so you get the full instructions. It's recommended you eat it as a condiment (so basically don't woof done the entire jar) Supposedly it has good bacteria and enzymes that aid in digestions. I been doing it and I love it.

Feel free to bug me if you have anymore questions! :)
