When you think of kimchi, pickles and sauerkraut, you can’t help but feel your salivary glands kick into high gear. There’s something about fermented vegetables that makes everything so appetizing! If you have a lot of vegetables lying around the house from a bountiful veggie patch, why don’t you try to preserve them? Lucky for you, We’ve discovered a basic fermenting technique in this video by Sandorkraut that will help!
Fermentation has been around since the Neolithic age. The ancient Chinese, Egyptians and Africans are just some of the cultures that started to make use of this method. To be a little scientific about it, fermentation is a metabolic process that converts sugars into acids, gases or alcohol. People in the ancient times started to use salt, water and spices to help preserve their vegetables. It’s well known for it’s familiar sour taste (thanks to the acids that were produced during the process).

These preserved vegetables are widely regarded as very good for your health. They actually contain beneficial bacteria. Many people are suffering from yeast infections, irritable bowel syndrome and other digestive problems, which may be caused by a lack of good bacteria in their gut. Eating some of your favorite sauerkraut or kimchi with your daily meals will be able to provide a good amount of friendly bacteria. It will also help absorb the nutrients better.
In the modern world, we’ve become so afraid of germs that we tend to forget that we also need them to keep our bodies strong and healthy. The goal is not to wipe out bacteria. The goal is to help the “good guys” to win and be in control, keeping the bad guys at bay. Did you know that people who have taken antibiotics are sometimes advised to drink Yakult (a fermented milk drink) or take probiotics? This is because antibiotics can also kill the good bacteria found inside the gut. This just goes to show that not all germs are bad.
Aside from their nutritional value, there’s one reason why people keep on preserving their vegetables – they taste so good! Fermented vegetables also make a great appetizer for meals because they make your tongue more sensitive to the taste. You might feel a little weird about eating them the first time, but trust us, you will become addicted! Ok, here’s the video tutorial on How To Make Fermented Vegetables:

An amazing discovery in an abandoned house in Austin, Texas: A lost book of amazing survival knowledge, believed to have been long vanished to history, has been found in a dusty drawer in the house which belonged to a guy named Claude Davis.
Remember... back in those days, there was no electricity... no refrigerators... no law enforcement... and certainly no grocery store or supermarkets... Some of these exceptional skills are hundreds of years of old and they were learned the hard way by the early pioneers.
