Fermentation ~ Alchemy Of Life
Things may not be immediately discernible in what a (Wo)man writes, and in this sometimes (S)he is fortunate; but eventually they are quite clear, and by these and the degree of Alchemy that (S)he possesses, (S)he will endure or be forgotten. ~ Hemingway
An unassuming repurposed milk container becomes a Sacred Container.
Grounded in the natural philosophy of the Middle Ages, alchemy formed a bridge: on the one hand into the past, to Gnosticism, and on the other into the future, to the modern psychology of the unconscious. ~ Jung
Fruit remnants from the kitchen find there way inside. Daily offerings are made until the sacred vessel is full.
Kefir whey or sugar is added. Fermentation ... A sacred alchemical journey begins. A journey of transformation.
Three moon cycles pass.
Upon the start of the 4th moon cycle its harvest time.

The first stage of filtration leaves one with liquid fruit enzyme and fermented fruit pieces.
The thick part left at the bottom is collected for more voluptuous products like; Fruit enzyme and coffee body scrub! A new favorite!
The larger pieces are used as an attractor for the black soldier fly, a perfect 'first food' for the baby larvae.
If one is wondering how this all smells, ... Jam making is close. Super fruit fresh! ... From here, as the larvae grow they travel to the next bin that holds the remaining kitchen remnants. ... And the journey continues. Leaving one with bioactive soil and hygienic organic liquid fertilizer. The process of fermentation is detoxifying, a very powerful force is unleashed in this container.
This is pandemic living; creating an environment that makes it Very Difficult for Viruses to live while simultaneously Creating An Extremely Healthy Environment For Humans to live.
I've been amazed to learn all of the links between microbial health and our general health. This all started by trying to understand fermentation. The fermentation outside your body, and its relation to the fermentation inside your body. The key to health is fermentation, it turns out. ~ Michael Pollan
The fruit enzyme is made into a heap of products from medicinal baby wash to laundry ...
Many have said of Alchemy, that it is for the making of gold and silver. For me such is not the aim, but to consider only what virtue and power may lie in medicines. ~Paracelsus

|Ana||It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad. ~ C.S. Lewis||09:08:20|

|Ana||"Eggs have been known to, and enjoyed by, humans for many centuries. Jungle fowl were domesticated in India by 3200 B.C.E. Record from China and Egypt show that fowl were domesticated and laying eggs for human consumption around 1400 B.C.E., and there is archaeoligical evidence for egg consumption dating back to the Neolithic age. The Romans found egg-laying hens in England, Gaul, and among the Germans. The first domesticated fowl reached North America with the second voyage of Columbus in 1493." ---Encyclopedia of Food and Culture, Solomon H.

Sourdough crêpes are so satisfying; quick, easy and versatile!
Kefir milk, olive oil and moringa leaf powder makes a yummy addition to the dragon fruit. Chopped fruit keeps beautifully fresh dressed in kefir milk.
|Ana||"It is clear that Egyptians enjoyed their food. Nobles and priests were particularly well served, with at least forty different kinds of bread and pastries, some raised, some flat, some round, some conical, some plaited. There were some varieties made with honey, others with milk, still others with eggs." ---Food in History, Reay Tannahill [Three Rivers Press:New York] 1988 (p. 53)||09:50:49|
