We are going back to a simpler time. Back before the food industry came along, our grandparents grew their own food and took time to properly prepare that food. Today, we call that traditional cooking, and that’s what we’ll be discussing today: Traditional Cooking and How To Make Fermented Foods.
Traditional Cooking and How To Make Fermented Foods?
Happy Healthy Family Podcast Episode 07
with Wardee Harmon of Traditional Cooking School
My guest is Wardee Harmon of Traditional Cooking School. Wardee’s videos taught me how to make fermented foods like kombucha, kefir, and sauerkraut. She’s here today to discuss traditional cooking methods like soaking, sprouting, and or course fermenting.
We are also going to discuss what exactly traditional cooking means, and why we should even worry about it.

On the show, I mentioned that I read somewhere that oxalates are concentrated in the skin of the almond. Unfortunately, I cannot seem to find confirmation on that, so if you have an oxalate issue, assume that almonds are high in oxalates even without the skin.
