Welcome to Home Shalom!

Welcome to Home Shalom and Shalom Farm. We pray your visit here be blessed. We are learning to walk in the Ways (Torah) of our Father YHWH and follow Y'shua, His Messiah until He returns to "set things straight". We call it a "Messi-Life". Our walk is neither tidy nor perfect, but it is filled with passion, devotion and desire to serve our King. We are learning to be humble servants, and to be good stewards of the things that He has entrusted to us: His Word, our marriage, our children, our family, our community, our health, and our farm. Hitch your horse and stay a while--our door is always open!

The Complete Idiot's Guide to Fermenting Foods

I am so excited to share this next resource and carry it in our Family Amazon store.  The Complete Idiot's Guide to Fermenting Foods an indispensable resource in anyone's kitchen who would like to incorporated Lacto-Fermentation into their lifestyle.  The author Wardeh Harmon,  offers clear instructions on how to make a myriad of cultured foods.  If you really want to understand fermentation well - this is the book for you!  The first four chapters are all loaded with facts and history on fermenting foods.  If you don;t rerally care abut that stuff and just want a BUNCH of recipes in many categories to choose from, then the rest of the book is for you!  Either way - this is a great resource.  This book lacks the pretty pictures and the personal testimonials that are in the other book I featured on Lacto-Fermenting food, but it makes up for it with a much more thorough content matter.  It is also twice the content for half the price...so that is something to consider too.  In my opinion, it is worth having BOTH of these books in my kitchen library, because their recipes are different and it gives you a broader view on fermentation. The only thing I don't care for about this book is the title...as a matter of fact if it weren't for being familiar with the author from her blog and e-courses (which are fabulous!), I never would have picked up this book!  Now, I am so glad I did!  I have been enjoying and experimenting with the the recipes myself and it is a great source of inspiration for me to springboard into my own recipes as well. This resource is a keeper, I highly recommend it!

I just requested this through my library. It's funny that you mentioned you wouldn't have gotten it if you weren't familiar with Wardeh already because that's exactly what I thought when I was looking for fermenting titles through our library. (I don't care for those titles either...)
I'm glad to know that you found it worthwhile (although I suspected it would be) since I know you are far more knowledgeable about fermenting in general that what I am. :-)
