When I can get into the hills and mountains like to collect wild native plants and tree medicine that I cannot get here on the desert floor.
I have been drinking variations of pine needle teas for some years now and recently wondered what would happen if I made a pine needle fermentation.
Fermentations are the chemical breakdown of a substance by bacteria, yeasts, or other microorganisms, typically involving effervescence and the giving off of the heat. Fermentations can be made with just about anything: meat, dairy, veggies, herbs, the sky is the limit really.
A few of my favorite books:
I did a simple fermentation, large jar, a material cover of natural fiber, pine needled fresh, ginger root fresh, Himalayan salt, honey local, purified water.
I chopped fresh ginger root leaving on the skin placed it in the jar.
I chopped the pin needles and the limbs and placed that into the jar.
I added several pinches of salt.
I added the water to about the top.
I added the honey.
I placed it in a good spot out of direct sunlight, away from the air blowing on it.
I covered it with a cotton cloth in this case a flour kitchen towel which I folded several times and put over the top of the jar. And wait…
I use mason jars, eventually, I hope to splurge for a crock. I have had many jars explode with glass all over because I did not manage the pressure of the content inside daily. I do not lid my ferments anymore.
