Chiles take the spotlight, with recipes such as Thai Pepper Mint Cilantro Paste, Aleppo Za'atar Pomegranate Sauce, and Mango Plantain Habanero Ferment, but other traditional spices like horseradish, ginger, and peppercorns also make cameo appearances. Dozens of additional recipes for breakfast foods, snacks, entrees, and beverages highlight the many uses for hot ferments.

About the Author

Kirsten K. Shockey and Christopher Shockey are the co-authors of the best-selling Fermented Vegetables. They got their start in fermenting foods with their farmstead food company, where they created more than 40 varieties of cultured vegetables and krauts. Their current focus is on teaching the art of fermenting vegetables to others through classes and workshops at their farm. They live on a 40-acre hillside homestead in the Applegate Valley of southern Oregon.
