Anyways, ds's favorite fermented veggie food is kimchi (he calls it kim-kim). We just made 2 L this morning. He was standing at the bowl pounding it with a mallet and eating it off his fingers.
I make it with asian cabbage (pretty much whatever's available; suey choy is nice, or nappa cabbage), grated carrots, onions, ginger, and garlic. Sometimes a little chili pepper. I measured my salt. I used a little less than a Tbsp.
He also likes ginger carrots (just grated carrots, ginger, garlic, and salt); and mixed salt-brine pickles (just random veggies packed into a salty-brine in a jar). He loved the salsa, but seems to be reacting to tomatoes, so we've had to nix that recently.
I should mention (I posted this on the NT thread in the main nutrition forum) that I made the raw liver-ground beef jerky, and it turned out well, so if you are looking for a way to eat your raw meat (and organ meat!) the jerky is a pretty palatable way to go.
rype: have you asked your milk supplier if he will sell cream? I pay $5/gal for milk, and $8/qt for cream. When I make butter, I get about a pint of butter per qt of cream, which means that my butter costs $8/lb approx. I use the buttermilk for baking. If you can get cream, this approach would be more cost effective.
