Fermentation Fun!

We live in a culture that fears bacteria.

But what we are learning is that bacteria are our friends and allies! They are all around us and intricately and intimately involved in our lives. And when it comes to food they offer us good health and good taste.

Last year we got our seed garlic from Homegrown Farm, they have been saving and planting there own garlic for years (Didn't grow your own? You can buy garlic from Homegrown at the Durango Farmers Market). It was very good seed garlic, we got HUGE cloves.

This planting is very special because we have now seen this garlic through a whole life cycle!
