Things to remember… Every ferment is a little different depending on the temperature; the ingredients and the environment so don’t get disheartened if your creation doesn’t taste delicious upon first try. Simply try again! You can also mix and match herbs and spices to explore different flavours and of course you can make up your own recipes! Just remember have fun and don’t be scared, this has been done for centuries!
