Every family has their own Thanksgiving traditions and recipes they prepare every year on Thanksgiving. My family makes tamales and enchiladas, as well as three different kinds of fruit salad. Another Spoiled To Perfection team member is cooking a Filipino style Thanksgiving with homemade lumpia this year. Whatever your traditions may be, I would like to share some recipes I’ve stumbled across that add the flavor of fermentation to the table. Most of these recipes can be prepared the day of or the day before. These are recipes created by some of our favorite fermenters. Enjoy!
