Background and Personal History:

Holly Howe is a grade school teacher turned fermentation educator and founder of the popular MakeSauerkraut.com website where she has helped thousands of people successfully master fermentation in a jar with just cabbage, salt, time, and a bit of help from the bacterial world.

She visits her year-round farmer’s market each week to gather inspiration for seasonally fermenting produce picked at the peak of freshness. Spring leeks are fermented into a delicious paste for seasoning scrambled eggs and ham sandwiches. June cucumbers are made into cucumber pickles for a crunchy snack. Fall carrots and beets are julienned and brine pickled for topping winter salads. And of course, early winter cabbage is fermented into a broad palette of sauerkraut flavors.
