What's a ginger bug? A charming name for a collection of bacteria and yeasts that colonize a bowl of sweetened ginger left on the counter for a few days. Easy to make, and easy to tailor the intensity of the ginger. Aka ginger beer, it's delicious!
Making probiotic pickles with no special equipment and no hot stove and no vinegar is extremely simple and SO delicious! Many different vegetables ferment beautifully and are well-worth the 5 minutes (+ 2 weeks unattended) it takes to prep them.
