*****" Fermenti. has the most amazing array of fermented foods I've ever seen! Locally grown fresh ingredients, original homemade recipes, and lots of love yield an end product that is as delicious as it is good for you! Meg puts her heart and soul into her work and you can taste the difference. I will never buy pasteurized or generic store bought kraut, pickles, or fermented veggies ever again. Nothing beats the flavor of real living foods, and nothing heals the gut better either. Keep up the good work!"-Customer
