What's in Season (North America)?

Here's a list of the summer produce we love using for fermenting:

  • Tomatoes: Juicy and flavorful, tomatoes are a staple of summer gardens. Make one of our most popular recipes, Fermented Salsa with them. 
  • Plums: Sweet and tart, plums add a delightful twist to your ferments. Check our Fermented Plums recipe.
  • Beets: Earthy and vibrant, beets are perfect for creating colorful and nutritious ferments. How about making Fermented Beets with Thyme?
  • Bell Peppers: Crunchy and sweet, bell peppers bring a pop of color and flavor. Try our Fermented Bell Peppers recipe. 
  • Asparagus: Tender and fresh, asparagus is a great addition to your fermenting repertoire.
  • Celery: Crisp and refreshing, celery adds a unique texture and taste.
  • Cauliflower: Versatile and nutritious, cauliflower can be fermented on its own or with other veggies. Try our Curry Cauliflower recipe
  • Radish: Peppery and crunchy, radishes are a zesty treat in any ferment. Plus they are one of the most beautiful ferments in our opinion. Make them this season with our super easy Fermented Radishes recipe
  • Peach: Sweet and succulent, peaches bring a fruity flair to your ferments. They work perfectly for flavouring kombucha.

Why Ferment?

Fermentation is not only a fantastic way to preserve the season's harvest but also a method to enhance the nutritional value of your foods. Fermented foods are rich in probiotics, which support gut health and overall well-being. Plus, the process of fermenting can increase the bioavailability of certain vitamins, making your homemade ferments even more nutritious.
