"It Don't Mean A Thing If It Ain't Got That Zing"

Lacto-fermentation delivers the zing plus Chef Jem's Nourishing "Bug Juice"

It's gotten to the point that I just as soon pass on most foods unless they include some form of lacto-fermentation. That's especially true for drinks. I have been lacto-fermenting nourishing traditional drinks for over ten years now and there are no other drinks for me! I recently tried some packaged coconut water and immediately thought, I can add this to my lacto-fermented coconut drink (that has become appealing to other members in my household as well)!

For a single batch I take an individual jar of coconut butter, place it on the warm shelf in my kitchen for a day or so until the oil separates (which I pour off and save as stock of coconut oil). I add about four times the volume of that jar in fresh whey, which I warm in a hot water bath and into which I add an organic sweetener (i.e. honey, maple syrup, organic cane sugar) that is about equal to the volume of the jar. I mix that all together then pour that into a gallon jug with an air lock. If it is too thick I may add some coconut water. I place that back on my warm shelf and it develops it's "zing" in a few days.

That "zing" is the real thing! Soda pop "fizz" is a cheap imitation of the original zing!

My therapist housemate suggested I add my dinner-table comment about this blog when I said "I make 'bug juice'". The term first came to me fifty years ago when I was a camper in Wisconsin. However, the "bug juice" at camp is not the same bug juice that I make. My bug juice will nourish the gut bacteria. Here's an article on the subject that I am in the process of reading now. I was inspired to post this when I read the part about mother's milk.:

“Mother’s milk, being the only mammalian food shaped by natural selection, is the Rosetta stone for all food,” says Bruce German, a food scientist at the University of California, Davis, who researches milk. “And what it’s telling us is that when natural selection creates a food, it is concerned not just with feeding the child but the child’s gut bugs too.”:
