    Favourite Lacto-Fermentation Recipes?

    As with any new hobby, I'm now obsessing over lacto-fermentation. As per my previous post, I've put up some jalapenos for hot sauce and some sauerkraut. I've got some Korean red chili powder (gochugaru) on order so that I can make some kimchi, and I've got a bunch more jalapenos to make some pickled jalapenos.
    I'm looking for other fermentation enthusiasts to post some recipes that I can try.
    Here's the kimchi recipe I'm going to try first as napa cabbage is hard to come by here, and this sounds delicious.
    Yangbaechu Kimchi (Green Cabbage Kimchi) - Korean Bapsang


    Gosh, where to start? I use fermenting and associated pickling techniques quite a bit. Kimchi, the occasional kraut, etc.For many cooks, its the foil of the fatty, and sometimes sweet bbq. For some, like making salami, etc., it's integral to getting the flavor and texture I want. The right tool for the right job. Serve your food, and you will be rewarded.

      Cold (not quite that cold) and snowing here in Ontario. Damn snow is preventing me from being able to see the longest partial lunar eclipse since 1440! ūüėí

        Cool. His books have great recipes too.

      I usually keep it pretty simple and just stick with having a couple of qt/L jars of basic sauerkraut around at all times. My wife is less fond of sour-anything (including me at times, she says) unless it looks prettier than basic kraut (allow me to beat Panhead John to the punch here: "including me, it seems" ). As a result, I typically get out the mandolin and cut a carrot or two into potato chip thickness slices for inclusion into the cabbage. The carrots don't seem to change the flavor at all but they introduce some slightly different textures and make it "pretty" enough for SWMB to eat.

      The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

      The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

      The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

      The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

      The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

      Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.
