Fermentation & preservation
Fermentation is a method of preservation, although it differs from what we know as pickling. Pickles with sugar and vinegar have long been used to preserve summer fruits and vegetables well into winter - and fermentation is a technique that can also be used for storage. Sauerkraut and kimchi are two products that we clearly recognize as fermented. However, a large amount of what the common man consumes for pleasure is actually fermented. The obvious examples are wine, beer, cheese and bread, all of which build their complex flavors in a fermentation process. But the coffee bean and cocoa bean are also fermented before being dried and roasted. Here you will find cookbooks about both fermentation and pickling that we think are worth reading.
