What about peaches and pears? I just bought three boxes full, and they'll be crying for attention in a week or less. Can I make a healthy jam/jelly? Can I ferment them into something healthy/probiotic-filled?
I have made fermented beet juice. It is a lacto fermentation. It is very healthy. I recommenced reading Sally fallon's book Nourishing Traditions for more info on this as I am short on time right now.
You can natural ferment lots of vegetables and they increase in nutrition. You can add a little sea salt and yogurt to most vegetables to ferment them. Sorry I don't have time right now to go into the details, but I highly re commend her book.
Hope this helps
