Vegetables are good for you — you know that. But did you know you can make them even better for your body? Fermentation isn’t just an ancient practice of preservation that has come into vogue lately; it’s a scientifically proven method of improving your gut health and amping up your availability to the nutrients already packed into vegetables. Fermentation also happens to lead to meals that are full of delicious surprises — asparagus kimchi! cranberry relish! okra pickles! rutabaga kraut! — and it’s a home ritual that gives you intimate insights into the movements of time and the mysteries of nature.
