Fermented Mayo

Anyone who loves homemade mayo will adore this fermented mayo recipe!

Another one that is great for getting ferments in without anyone knowing…

I find many people who hear the word ‘ferment’ think SAUERKRAUT and won’t go any further.  They instantly think sour and smelly and switch off.   Fermented and Cultured foods are so much more than just sauerkraut and don’t have to taste sour or be smelly!
