Today, on the podcast, I’m talking to Sarah from St. Pete Ferments all about fermented foods. This is one of my favorite episodes this season, because the topic of fermented foods is something I’m learning so much about. After talking to Sarah, I even started making my own sauerkraut (you’ll learn how in this episode–it’s super easy!).
