Fermented Food and Drink

In anticipation of the opening of the 2017 Collingwood Farmer’s Market I would like to pass on my excitement about a new guest vendor; Inspired Brews.  Fermented foods like sourdough bread, sauerkraut, pickles, Korean kimchi and kombucha are the lasted craze for good gut health.  In my past life I have made my own sauerkraut, kimchi, pickles and a sourdough starter for bread, however this beverage eluded me.   Kombucha is a fermented beverage I had heard a great deal about especially from Al Roker on the Today Show.  He frequently touted the immense benefits of this fermented beverage as he sipped from a “to go cup!”  I was lucky enough to join David Hodges for a visit to local brick and mortar fermentary in Philadelphia called Inspired Brews.  Run by a small group of amazing women this company brews  small batch kombucha using local fresh ingredients.  I was delighted to sample Philly Strawberries and Cream and Philly Rose Pomegranate.   I was hooked after the very first sip!  Luckily my local Whole Foods in Cherry Hill carries Inspired Brews on tap, so I am able to enjoy this heathy drink as well as try different brews.  If you are a fan of the market as I am give Inspired brews a try!
