Ferment for Good is a guide to discovering the joys of fermentation in its myriad variations – framed through the eyes of Sharon Flynn, a one-time English teacher who has hooked early in her 20s and has since made it her life's work to learn and share all there is to know about this most ancient of practices.

Her mission with her business is for the person who buys her products to feel as if they are receiving it from an old friend - one who desperately wants to share her discovery and passion with them. So too with the book. Alongside a how-to guide to the basics (why do it; what you need; and what you'll get), the book offers sections on wild fermented vegetables (including sauerkraut, kimchi and brine ferments); drinks (water kefir, kombucha, Jun tea, pineapple wine, mead); milk and dairy (including yoghurt and milk kefir), condiments and breads (such as mustard, spreads, dosa and injera); and Japanese ferments (including miso & tamari, soy sauce, sake kasu and pickled ginger).

Sharon Flynn shares her knowledge of and passion for fermentation in her accessible, chatty style, combining personal anectdotes of her fermenting adventures with hands-on instructions on how to set up your own benchtop fermentary at home. She completes the package by sharing her favourite recipes and ideas for incorporating ferments into your everyday life and meals.

Lovingly illustrated and featuring informative photos, Ferment for Good is a beautiful, carefully curated collection to introduce you to the world of fermentation.
