She actually inoculated that cheese with penicillin candidum that she found from a vegan source. Amazing.

Y'all might have to get over your fears of rejuvelac! :laugh:
For the record, I've never made it, so there's actually no reason to listen to anything I have to say about this...!

I am not afraid of rejuvelac! It can't be any grosser than dairy cheese. Which I loved back in the day.

^ Yeah, dairy cheese is a pretty weird food if you think about it!

This stuff reminds me of making fermented-style pickles. I've done that before (both the cucumber kind and with chile-peppers) and they've turned out fine all but a couple of times. I could definitely tell if they were off--they smelled like garbage instead of like yummy pickles. I think it must be the same with rejuvelac.

For the record, the rejuvelac I made smells a little weird, but not at all bad. I think it's just an unfamiliar smell to me. It tastes fine--nice and lemony, like they say it should!

I'm soaking some cashews now and will try the basic recipe from the Artisan cookbook (which I can see in the preview at Amazon). I'll check in so you know I'm OK! :cool:

I'm still alive, but I'm not so sure about the cheese and/or rejuvelac. I want to buy some rejuvelac somewhere so I have an idea of what's normal. This stuff tastes OK and doesn't smell like it's gone bad, but it isn't a very appealing smell either... if that makes sense.
I hope I didn't just waste 2 cups of organic cashews.
More later....
