    Caught an interesting edition of the Food Programme today about fermented food. It is available as a podcast. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b073655s

    Having long been a fan of fermented liquid products this got me thinking of giving it a try. Here are a couple of recipes for fermented tomatoes.

    The last one obviously has a health angle but the message from the programme was all about taste.

    You could always try some 'Surströmming'

    but make sure your on your own when you open the tin! (y)

    Hmm, fermented herring, might pass on that one! But I guess it was done for storage as are the fruit and vegetables.

    But the programme does mention fermented rhubarb goes well with mackerel. :)
