    A wonderful guide on the art of fermentation with vegetables. I am a long time fermentor. I've been making kimchi and pickles for years, the basics. This book cover those is a well written process easy to follow and it has so much more. The ideas I got from this book just might drive me build a pickling pantry to store all my jars. I've always wanted to make sauerkraut, but how about carrot-kraut ? Or pickled brussel sprouts, my daughters fav. Oh and pickling herbs ?!?!

I've got a ton of stuff planted and now I have the recipes. I really loved this book. It was practical with general recipes to get anyone started. it had great portions, small batches are not normally a part of a pickling/fermenting book. Lastly it had some fabulous new ideas I can't wait to dive not.

    Fantastic and informative book on fermenting vegetables. Canning was popular among the older generations where I grew up, and I currently live in a land where fresh food reigns and the culture of storing food and fermenting it is forgotten. I’m proud to learn this necessary skill and make sure it doesn’t die out. I’ve made kombucha and kimchi in the past, and I now have carrots in brine as we speak. I can’t wait to try fermenting citrus, pastes, and hot sauces. This is an excellent resource on g Fantastic and informative book on fermenting vegetables.

I also own The Art of Fermentation which seems more of a deep dive into the history and culture around fermentation. But if you’re looking to get started lickity split, this is your shit.

    I NEED TO BUY THIS ONE! I borrowed it from the library, have read it through, and there are SO MANY amazing recipes I want to try! Unfortunately, I don't have time before needing to return it. I will either borrow again, or buy my own before the summer harvest begins. I can't wait!!! I NEED TO BUY THIS ONE!

    What I liked most about Kirsten K. Shockey and Kirsten K. Shockey’s Fermented Vegetables: Creative Recipes for Fermenting 64 Vegetables & Herbs in Krauts, Kimchis, Brined Pickles, Chutneys, Relishes & Pastes Kindle Edition was the fact that it quickly and efficiently proved to me that I was not going to be able to ferment vegetables in my condo. Rather than make my negative case, I would rather focus on the value received by getting both the good and bad news. At no more cost than this one book I What I liked most about Kirsten K. Shockey and Kirsten K. Shockey’s Fermented Vegetables: Creative Recipes for Fermenting 64 Vegetables & Herbs in Krauts, Kimchis, Brined Pickles, Chutneys, Relishes & Pastes Kindle Edition was the fact that it quickly and efficiently proved to me that I was not going to be able to ferment vegetables in my condo. Rather than make my negative case, I would rather focus on the value received by getting both the good and bad news. At no more cost than this one book I was spared the business of buying containers and foods and other such supplies, only to find that the down side of the fermenting would make this an impractical choice. Throughout the language is clear, and the instruction read as easy to follow. Fermenting Vegetables makes a compelling case for the advantages to anaerobic fermentation of foods. I liked reading the text for its information, for the honest enthusiasm and tell all attitude of the authors. Fermented Vegetables: Creative Recipes for Fermenting 64 Vegetables & Herbs in Krauts, Kimchis, Brined Pickles, Chutneys, Relishes & Pastes is highly recommended as a first read, must read for anyone with no experience, uncertain of what they are likely to experience and not only why they should become an at home fermenter and as in my case, why they may prefer to be a customer.

    I received a copy of this book for review from Storey Publishing Ok... I have a confession to make. I love Storey books! I love, love, love them. I know, every time I get a book published by them, that it will be awesome (only ONE book so far, that I haven't liked, but that was the subject). This book was no exception. Wonderfully detailed, step by step instructions and explanations of the why and hows of fermenting. Clear and inspiring pictures throughout the book. You just want to run out and g I received a copy of this book for review from Storey Publishing Ok... I have a confession to make. I love Storey books! I love, love, love them. I know, every time I get a book published by them, that it will be awesome (only ONE book so far, that I haven't liked, but that was the subject). This book was no exception. Wonderfully detailed, step by step instructions and explanations of the why and hows of fermenting. Clear and inspiring pictures throughout the book. You just want to run out and get started! My husband and I have been trying to eat more seasonal. Alas there are things we simply LOVE and want year round. So we have also been thinking about fermenting. Sure, we have made Kraut before, but that was about the extent of it.(We shall not speak of the wine, that accidentally turned to vinegar.) We knew there must be more out there, but to be honest, we "didn't have time" do do all the research to find out the what and hows. Then a bunch of my friends got interested in fermenting at the same time and my husband noticed this title in the Storey catalogue and I asked if I could have it. A few days later, the postman brought the book. WOW did it ever open our eyes! Not only did we now have all the research right at our fingertips, without having to search all over the internet, but it came with easy to understand instructions, was portable to the grocery store (yes, we still don't have "internet on the go", we don't have iPhones...we live like cave men around here), and gave us suggestions, we would never have dreamed up to search for. Wonderful recipes, not just instructions on how to ferment things, but what to make with it afterwards! Fermented Breakfast anyone? No.. don't ferment your breakfast, but have some Kimcheese, or sauerkraut frittata, maybe... RIGHT??? you would NOT think of these things!!! We didn't either, but boy oh boy are we now! We set right out and tried the Kimchi recipe from the book, as we really never found a Kimchi we liked any place around to buy. It. Is. Amazing! We will stick with it from now on. We did change just a wee little bit, but not much...we left out the fish sauce, since we forgot to get it lol and we left out the pepper flakes, since I can't do spicy (one of the main reasons we haven't found any we like and eat) Other than that, we stuck to the recipe as suggested and it was delicious! Next we will do grape leaves!!! If you have never fermented before and are really afraid to try it, get the book! It will take the fear out of you and give you confidence in trying your hand and feeding you family worth while food. Also: it is not as much work as you might think and only requires a minimum of tools (who doesn't have Kerr glasses around the house and if not, what is your excuse?????) This book is once again a home run. It is absolutely true to Storey's mission statement. To serve their customers by publishing practical information that encourages personal independence in harmony with the environment. Thank you for finding these wonderful, talented and knowledgeable authors!!! Put together with the most inspiring photography it makes for great reading and successful recreating! I encourage you to try your hand at fermenting and providing healthy food for your family, while being in charge of every ingredient. StoreyPublishing and their wonderful authors take the scary out of doing things from scratch, if you don't have family around to help, or teach you!

    A-MAZ-ING book about fermenting and brining. I can't explain it better than this - I've read half a dozen books on fermenting, and none of them have been as crystal clear as this book. There are no special weights required or storage spaces needed; simply use a mason jar or crock and fill up a ziploc baggie with water and use that as a weight to keep all veg submerged under brine. Seriously easy. Wish I knew this before I bought special mason jar air release lids and glass weights, blah blah bla A-MAZ-ING book about fermenting and brining.

Seriously easy. Wish I knew this before I bought special mason jar air release lids and glass weights, blah blah blah. Sometimes you have to remind yourself that it's fermenting - this is how people stored foods before refrigeration and even sanitation. I made the regular kimchi and the lemon-dill kraut and curtido. All amazing, and no, none of them stunk up our tiny house and tinier kitchen (with no ventilation). I really can't wait to try the rest, especially the carrot cake, which a friend raves about! Bonus for this being an amazing digital book with links and info that actually work properly. I enjoy my kindle copy as I can access it while I'm in the grocery or at the market for veggies, but dang, I really want to have a physical copy as this book really lends itself to flipping back and forth between chapters and recipes.

    "Submerge in brine and all will be fine!" Being a novice, this book somewhat dispelled my fears that "home-fermenting" and "botulism-waiting-to-happen" go hand in hand. The authors describe the fermenting process thoroughly. I appreciated that they not only explained how fermenting can be successfully accomplished with the most basic of equipment, but also took the time to discuss (without judgement) many of the gadgets that are out there that some people use.

I also appreciated the pictorial appendix on "scum-the good, the bad, and the ugly" but I still know that I will have a hard time tasting something that I've scooped mold out of. For those with more experience, the authors include recipes for vegetables from A to Z. Recipes range from the simple, "Naked Kraut" to what I would call bizarre "Burdock Kimchi." I am left with the impression that home-fermenting is something that I can easily and frugally try.

    This book would be an amazing resource to own/have on hand, esp in physical form. They go through every vegetable/ingredient with stories of mad science experiments, successes and failures. It's incredibly detailed and the recipes all look AMAZING. Top of the wishlist. This book would be an amazing resource to own/have on hand, esp in physical form.

    This fermentation/cookbook is so incredibly thorough. It explains in detailed depth the various ways to ferment and how to cook with or incorporate ferments into dishes, while also including some historical tidbits on certain foods or ferments (such as pickled cucumbers date back 4,000 years ago to India!). I also enjoyed the information about vitamin content. I had no idea how much turnips and radishes were packed with vitamins. It is overall THE book to read for fermentation newbies.

I tried curtido for the first time using a recipe in the book, and now I just can't get through my morning breakfast without adding curtido to my eggs. I still have a lot of recipes to try out, but with the help of the how-to guidance in this book, and my 3 crocks, I have a lot more confidence and success in my fermentation endeavors. Excellent book. 5 stars

    An excellent book on fermenting vegetables- in fact- this book covers pretty much every vegetable under the sun! Standards like sauerkraut and kimchi are covered in detail with photos, but many variations of kimchi and kraut are covered too. I'm just getting ready to make beet - kraut. Lacto fermentation is wonderful for people who are avoiding or who are allergic to dairy, because the fermentation process adds beneficial bacteria like you get in yogurt without any milk or milk derivatives.

    This book is a great overview of pickling and fermenting--I feel like I learned a ton, and I knew nothing about fermentation going in. The basic brine recipes and basic how-tos were incredibly useful, giving you a step by step walkthrough. The general recipes for specific vegetables, which was the bulk of the book, was also very helpful (but no recipe for pickled hot peppers? strange). Giving it one less star because I found the meal recipes to be...not useful.

    A little marvel of a book I got this kindle book thinking that it would not meet my expectations and I was damn right: it’s MUCH better than anything I could’ve expected. The authors style is fun and extremely informative, they ooze out as much passion about fermenting vegetables as fermented veggies exude brine! Tonnes of recipes and ideas, little anecdotes and stories. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and it’s now hands on time!!

    Very nice book, the authors know how to organize themselves and keep you entertained and interested. Really like all the creativity in the book. Being a herbalist i can tell you that not all information on medicinal plants is up to par. Definitely helped me get ideas for the ferment jars. :) Nice reference.
