Things on top of my ‘fridge:


A playmobil guy with Viking helmet

A staple gun

A shim

Brown rice crisps


Lactoferment(ing) lemonade

It is a rainy day – can’t play outside, a bit tired from a late night. Besides the fact that its always a great day to ingest healthy bacteria, its also a great day to give more of them life, so to speak.

This recipe originally came from the cook/book “Nourishing Traditions” and I was reminded about it be fellow blogger arealfoodlover.  Scaled due to laziness on this rainy day – prepared for a Sunday after-church where I will wish I would have squeezed 6 more lemons.

6 lemons

1/8 c whey (if you make yogurt or have some in the fridge, just dribble off the clearish-whitish-yellowish top ‘juice’ to get this amount. Learn more about whey here)

1/2 c sugar

1/2 gal (8 c) purified water

Juice lemons into container. Add whey water and sugar. Stir til dissolved. Cover, put note on it so no one in your house touches it (see above), and set in a warm spot to ferment. Wait 24 – 48 hours. Chill to slow fermentation when finished, drink and enjoy! *add more sugar to taste*

Watch for a post next week about some other easy lacto-fermented foods you can make at home, on YOUR fridge. Give the playmobil guys an eviction notice, and get some healthy gut flora goin’!
