My favorite food as a child was a traditionally fermented dill pickle from the neighborhood deli. They floated in oak barrels with lots of spices. These Fermented Dill Pickles are like that!
Suddenly my cucumbers have taken off and I have plenty to make lacto-fermented pickles! These pickles are made the traditional way with bacterial cultures that naturally preserve them. It’s also a great way of getting these beneficial bacteria into your belly and your kids will love them too!
These bacteria form the mucosal layer of the human digestive tract. Most of the bacteria reside in the colon. However, they do live in all the other parts of the digestive tract, although in lower numbers.
There are literally trillions of cells of bacteria, fungi and yeast living in a balanced harmonic state in a healthy individual. There are actually more gut microflora in our intestines than there are cells in our bodies.
That’s a lot! And they are very important to our health.
