I forgot to mention that I also make sourdough rye regularly. I typically let it ferment, while slowly adding flour and water, for at least a week. It's very dense and sour, with the very earthy rye flavor. I often add kefir grains to it as it's fermenting to increase the reaction. It's also a way to get rid of the extra kefir grains that just keep reproducing.

I haven't tried roasting Brussels sprouts, but I have seen many a recipe via Spark blog about roasting them and they seem well-loved. I very much dislike BS's and a couple of other veggies, but I still make them for JF...except BS's as he's never asked.
Almost any veggie can be roasted, but I have to say broccoli is better steamed or lightly stir fried.
Good luck with your veggie roasting experiments!
Love ya, doll!! Mwah!

I ferment a lot of cauliflower and some cabbage. I have to confess I haven't made kimchi yet. I have a bag of the chile for it in my freezer waiting.

I have a yogurt maker with little jars. I used to make a batch at least once a week, which I'd mix with berries for breakfast. When they were my blackberries, it was great. But with store-bought berries, I became uncomfortable with all the pesticides.

About the same time, I discovered kefir. My husband went from mercado to mercado and finally found a guy who made kefir smoothies. He gave us a spoonful of grains, and we've been at it for a couple of years now, every day on fruit. I prefer the kefir to yogurt. We each drain a little jar into a sieve onto fruit. I don't have to devote fridge space to all the yogurt jars. It just feels easier.

I haven't messed with kombucha or with water kefir. I don't like the idea of having to use sugar for it. I'm happy drinking lots of water, lime water, and tea. I'll often make a pitcher of hibiscus water as well.

Good to see you. My Hubby bought me a new camera about a year ago. He finally got a job, part time, but working from home. So he said we could afford a new camera. I have fun with it. I love taking pics of animals, and mother nature. Hope to see you more often!!
