What is wild fermentation?Updated 5 months ago
Wild fermentation is the original way of fermentation without adding a starter culture. Since the microorganisms responsible for this - primarily lactic acid bacteria - are everywhere, you do not need a starter culture to pickle vegetables and herbs. Lactic acid bacteria can be found on the food itself, on our skin, in the air etc. If you create the necessary environment, they multiply naturally and transform the food to be fermented.
