There is beneficial bacteria present on the surface of the cabbage. Sauerkraut is finely cut cabbage that has been fermented by various lactic acid bacteria, including Leuconostoc, Lactobacillus, and Pediococcus.
A pickled cucumber is a cucumber that has been pickled in a brine, vinegar, or other solution and left to ferment for a period of time, by either immersing the cucumbers in an acidic solution or through souring by lacto-fermentation.
Kefir or kephir, alternatively milk kefir, or búlgaros, is a fermented milk drink that originated in the north Caucasus Mountains made with kefir “grains”, a yeast/bacterial fermentation starter.
I took a very interesting class about food fermentation from Jenny Pandol last summer. In it I learned the health benefits of fermented foods and the variety and simplicity of making them. We were able to ask questions and received thoughtful, helpful responses from this warm, supportive instructor. I was able to stop taking pharmaceuticals for my reflux immediately, something I had not been able to do before. I highly recommend the class and the instructor. Jennifer Bowles
