Tennessee Jim’s World Class Salt Brine Fermentation Chile Sauces From Rushy Springs Farm!
Salt brine fermentation chile sauces are in a class by themselves above all others in the world of chile sauces. Here’s why.
Salt brine fermentation is perhaps the most ancient of all food preservation technologies. Even earlier would be salt pack preservation. Any food with high water content would have naturally created a brine. The brine would have created a protected environment for salt tolerant acidophilus bacilli (which occur commonly in the wild environment) to thrive without competition from other microbes. And voila!; an alchemical transformation resulting in a food, not only with long shelf life, but also in most cases, a food superior in taste and nutrition compared to the original input. Saurkraut is a good example of a fermentation that creates it’s own brine…
