Homemade Fermenting Fun

Urban Homesteaders KimchiNot only is kimchi so tasty, it’s good for you! Kimchi is a yummy Korean fermented salad usually made with cabbage and various spices, similar to sauerkraut. I love it when it’s really garlic-y! Lately, it seems like everyone is talking about probiotics and fermented foods as essentials to digestive health, so take a clue and get yourself some! Check out this homemade batch by the Urban Homesteaders made with homegrown carrots, daikon radish, green onions and cabbage.

If you’re in the Bay Area, Santa Cruz-based Happy Girl Kitchen is doing Fermenting and canning workshops which you can attend for a small fee. The day is complete with local organic lunch! Fermenting and canning your own food is a great way to use up the excess harvest from the garden and is good for the planet since there are no food miles from your plate to your backyard.

Springtime Beets!

Red and Golden Beets from Route One Farm

Red and Golden Beets from Route One Farm

It’s officially springtime, I’ve done a spring cleanse for my body and now all I want to eat are fresh fruits and veggies. I had to share the photo of these organic red and golden beets I got at the downtown Santa Cruz Farmer’s Market from Route One Farm. These beets were so good roasted with a little olive oil. So pretty and so delicious!
