I’m excited to announce the 2nd edition of Lisa’s Counter Culture: Pickles and Other Well-Bred Foods. This is a comprehensive guide covering fermentation (with anaerobic-specific recipes) AND a wide array of  nutrient-dense companion foods that make up a healthy diet. All the recipes are gluten free. Information on sourcing your best bets for real food as well as detailed, traditional recipes covering everything from bone broth, salads, meat, eggs, seafood, veggies, dehydrator to treats. This is a collection of my best tried and true recipes.

The first half of the book is devoted to the art and science of fermentation with recipes covering everything from kefir to condiments. This is a conveniently sized, spiral-bound 6-inch by 9-inch softcover book that lies flats while you brew up your next ferment or cook a clean nutrient dense meal. I want this book to be easy to use in your kitchen on a regular basis.

The fermenting recipes will work with any truly airtight anaerobic jar system (except for kombucha). I’ve used the Probiotic Jar as my vessel of choice. You may want to check out my review of this system. (I do also include a detailed chapter on Kombucha).
