Check out my review of new release, Ferment Pickle Dry. This lovely cookery book by Simon Poffley and Gaba Smolinksa-Poffley shares a wide selection of recipes for preserving food by fermenting, pickling and drying. More unusually, the book also provides ‘partner recipes’ that showcase how the preserves can best be put to use in your cooking.

    I am addicted to kimchi but would love to expand my fermenting repertoire! Have been adding kimchi to stir fried rice and to Korean style waffles. So yum.

    it’s hard to say what my favourite is as I’m on a bit of a preserving binge at the moment, as befits the time of year. But the star of this year’s preserving so far is semi dried cherry tomatoes made in the dehydrator. Not sure how effectively they are “preserved” though, given that we guzzle them as soon as they come out of the machine! I’d love to have a lot more ideas for using the dehydrator. At the moment we just use it for tomatoes and apples, and although it is great for both I’m sure it has a lot more potential

    Well I guess I have to say kefir as that’s what we drink pretty much every day. Mostly it goes into making delicious and healthful smoothies.

  4. Maxine G

    Pickled cucumbers have been a recent revelation, but I’m also loving kimchi at the moment too

  5. Marie

    Do cornichons count?! Love them – either straight from the jar or rolled up in ham or chopped up really small, stirred into some mayo, to go on a sandwich. 😋😋😋

  6. NickyB

    Pickled herrings, rollmops. With potato salad, chopped chives and chopped sweet onions. Irresistible.

    I’m a big fan of sourdough bread. Makes the bed toast and it is just a pleasure and a joy to make.
