For many years we have been searching for just the right fermenting book to offer on our website. Last summer, Stephanie Thurrow of the Minnesota From Scratch blog reached out to us about a book she was working on combining canning & fermenting recipes. Since I grew up canning, and Kryz grew up fermenting, this sounded like the perfect book for our family and business! Over the year that Stephanie was writing Can It & Ferment It, I had a chance to get to know her better and now consider her a friend. It was such an honor to send her some of our favorite fermenting supplies to use while she was trying out recipes for the book.
We were also thrilled that she asked to include our Polish Dill Pickle recipe (which comes with every crock we sell) in the book! And when Can It & Ferment It was finished, I got to read an advanced copy and offer my review, which is now featured on the back cover!
I was also happy to have the opportunity to attend the Can It & Ferment It book release party in Minneapolis. It was great to see Stephanie and get to check out Gyst Fermentation Bar and sample some wonderful fermented foods!
Now that we have a copy of the book to use ourselves, we have been exploring many of the fermenting and canning recipes! Our garden has been very productive this year, which has meant we need more creative ways to preserve the harvest. I love being able to flip through Can It & Ferment It and see lots of options for how to transform our veggies into year round goodies!
I'm sure all of you will enjoy Can It & Ferment It as much as we do. And now you can purchase it along with your fermenting supplies right here on our website! It's the perfect way to make sure you have everything you need to get started fermenting. Because like I said on my back-of-the-book review -
"Reading Stephanie's book is like having your own personal canning and fermenting expert right there with you."
So don't delay and add one to your order!
