Fermented Berry Sauce {quick, no-cook recipe!}

 

You might be wondering why someone would want to make fermented berry sauce and what exactly it is. All living things are covered with lactobacilli. They are lactic acid producing bacteria that help preserve fruits and veggies when used in fermentation. Fermenting fruits and vegetables enhances their digestibility and increases the vitamin content. It is a great (and yummy!) way to help encourage the growth of healthy flora in your gut.  You can learn a lot more about fermented veggies and fruits in The Nourishing Traditions Cookbook.

 

All you need are berries, sea salt, rapadura, and whey. Simply press the berries down into the jar using a wooden pounder or meat hammer. You only need to press lightly. Next, you’ll mix the salt, rapadura and whey and then simply pour that over the berries, add enough filtered water to cover the mixture and then ferment at room temperature for 2 days. Easy peasy!

Don’t be afraid to try this if you’ve never tried fermenting anything before. It is super simple and they say that if a fermentation has gone bad that it will smell so awful that you would not want to eat it. This sauce is excellent with yogurt, pancakes, ice cream or waffles.
