Sometimes, you don't have everything you need to make something work, but you still need to make it work. And sometimes, that's the best possible problem, because it forces you to solve the problem in ways you wouldn't naturally do.

Have you ever puzzled over the ingredient list on the back of some of your food? Sometimes, it sounds more science fiction than kitchen! Head on over to the Fermentools website for our latest post on Food Additives.
We are a husband and wife who are trying to live simply. We are learning much as we transition from life in the city to life in the country. Come along with us, and maybe you can also learn a thing or two as well.
We love writing for these fine folks as well!
