I made a pretty good batch o' spicy fermented pickles after a couple failures. (One got moldy, one was too squishy and salty.)

Now, I have a big batch o' sauerkraut going, and I just started some giardiniera, which already looks pretty good, but we'll see.

Also, I need more jars, some airlock lids, and more shelves or other storage/working space. Maybe a dedicated fermentation crock, even, for my birthday or something.

And I kind of think I could use a second refrigerator.

My latest batch of ginger ale got done in less than a day. I went to check it like 18 hours after I'd started it, and it blew up like a school project volcano. It's really good, too. I make sody pop, you guys!

PLUS my sourdoughs have been a bit lifeless lately, so I did a little tweaking and they also got all lively. I got a loaf that looks almost like a bowling ball, it poofed up so good.

Also, the sauerkraut is "ready" as soon as someone drinks enough of the ginger ale to make room in the fridge for it, made a new batch of cultured butter, got pickles figured out so I can now make them reliably, and have a small batch of hot sauce fermenting as of just now.

I'm starting to feel like a witch again. I am friends with the ambient cooties.

Ah HA. I am totally blaming you. I'm assuming I didn't tihnk of it all on my own. Apparently, you somehow hacked me in my in real IRL life. I've been adding a ginger reduction to my store boughted green tea. It's quite delicious.

I should look at cultured butter. I keep getting sent whole milk in my farm to table order. We don't drink milk, but we do use a lot of butter.

You need a lot of fat for butter, so I don't think even whole milk would work. I use heavy whipping-style cream.

You could make yogurt/labneh or an acid-based cheese, though, where you just heat up the milk and add vinegar or lemon juice (plus salt--always plus salt). I have a pretty good ricotta style recipe (technically, ricotta is made from whey, but the whole milk version is really really good), or paneer or some other fresh, farmer style cheese like queso fresco or cream cheese.
