I'd like regular ancestral cooking emails!
This is my Boza after just one day of fermentation…it’s gone bonkers! Several hours after I took this pic, I open the proofer again to find it had overflowed and I had a mess to clear up…
Boza is a traditional Turkish drink. This is the first time I’ve made a fermented drink out of cooked carb – in this case millet. Ostensibly, I’m doing it for my son, who we’ve seen wonderful strides with, health-wise, since starting on a lectin-free diet. Millet is lectin-free and he loves my fermented drinks!
Really though, I’m doing it as much for me..there’s just such a wonderful alchemy to fermenting, and fermenting something new – a challenge, that have to use my nous with – brings me so much joy.
I hope we’ll be drinking this soon!
