overnight fermented oatmeal with yogurt, mango & walnuts
I gave Luca a DIY Beer kit for his birthday. That’s how the bubble project first began. There had been signs: a copious domestic kefir production, a few (let’s say a dozen) jars of kompot and homemade sauerkrauts for hot dog nights. When fermentation became the main focus of my conversations, the mission was definitive.
Fermented foods are tasty, healthy and perfect for people who periodically stress their digestive systems (? :-)). And what about spring fatigue? Fermented foods are perfect to support your body throughout the change of season.
I’m about to explore the mystical world of fermented food. First try: a fermented oatmeal recipe
