Do you enjoy making your own cultured and fermented foods? Do you want to help encourage others to get started or tackle something new? We are launching a new page on our website featuring profiles of people just like yourself who make their own cultured and fermented foods at home.

How to win:

  1. Answer the following questions in written form:
    • Why did you start making your own cultured and fermented foods?
    • What was the first thing you tried to make?  How did it go?
    • What fermented and cultured foods do you enjoy making these days?
    • How does your family like your cultured food projects?
    • What is one (or two) tips you’d like to share with others who are interested in getting started or maybe looking for some encouragement to try something new?
    • Do you consider yourself a beginner, intermediate, or advanced in terms of making your own cultured and fermented foods?
  2. E-mail the answers to us at [email protected] along with your name, general location (e.g. Seattle, WA), e-mail address, and phone number. Optional: Along with your answers, feel free to submit pictures (e.g. your famous kefir chocolate cake, your bubbling Kombucha, etc.). We’d love to see them!
  3. Entries must be submitted no later than Sunday, October 23, 2011 at 11:59 pm PST.
  4. One entry will be chosen at random to receive a $100 gift certificate to Cultures for Health.  
  5. We will also choose a number of the entries to use as inspirational profiles on our website. If your entry is chosen for use, you will receive a $25 gift certificate to Cultures for Health. Keep in mind that we will be selecting a broad range of entries for use so even if you’re brand new at making yogurt or if you’ve been doing this for years, we want to hear from you!
