Welcome to our “It’s Alive!” box, a celebration of all the wild reactions, crazy growths, and hidden possibilities found in everyday foods. Yep, a lot of your food is actually alive, which means you can do some pretty cool things with what’s already in your refrigerator.
First, you’ll learn how yeast works by making a loaf of yummy focaccia bread. You’ll grow your own edible sprouts from seeds, use the gas released by yeast to blow up a balloon, and even grow brand-new vegetables from scraps you might have otherwise tossed in the trash. (After all, who doesn’t love a good zombie vegetable?) You’ll also learn all about fermentation and get to try your hand at making creamy yogurt and tangy sauerkraut.
Then see how cultures around the world use fermentation to create delicious and unique dishes.
To get your journey started, you’ll find two special tools in this box—a Bean Screen™ and a Pickle Pipe™, both from the folks at Masontops.
