The Permaculture Book of Ferment and Human Nutrition


The Permaculture Book of Ferment and Human Nutrition

By Bill Mollison


Most of this book is about fermentation, for it is an excellent way to prolong the life of many foods and to build proteins and vitamins into starchy low-grade foods. Most western peoples are familiar with yeast breads, sourdoughs, cheese, and beers. But few of us realise how skillfully traditional peoples enhance the flavours in their diet, or make simple carbohydrates more nutritious through fermentation.


“All the recipes given herein are traditional; they belong to humanity, even though they have been collected or tried by various authors, they have all been used for centuries by thousands of human beings. Only a few recipes are my own inventions (you may guess at these) but even these derive from my family or friends in their main ingredients or procedures.”

Bill Mollison
