I have been lacto-fermenting certain foods for a while. For a long time my family has been consuming homemade yogurt, kefir.
More recently, I read in a few places online about lacto-fermented soda. I am a fan of pops (sadly--not diet however, if that redeems me at all), and this idea of creating my own carbonated beverages that are actually good for my family intrigued me! After trying it, my children were hooked. Finally, a pop-like beverage my kids liked, that I could feel good about giving to them.
And now, since being back in Madagascar, I have delved into making these lacto-fermented condiments: ketchup
