This blog is about food; mostly cultured, fermented, or living food, but also other yummy, wholesome things that we want to share with you. We decided to start this blog in response to the welcome repeated questions about cultured, living, and wholesome foods that we receive from friends, from family, and from strangers met on subcontinental trains (a jar of alfalfa sprouts sticking out of one’s backpack is bound to stir curiosity).
A dear friend, who coined the name “possum” for both of us (we are sisters) due to our voracious fruit eating, refers to our wholesome, conscious way of living, eating, and consuming as possum living. Here we will focus on the eating side of possum living, within the possum kitchen, and will strive to gradually answer those questions on how to sprout, culture, ferment, pickle, and achieve a range of other delicious food verbs.
We don’t consider ourselves to fit into any particular dietary categories; we’re fortunate to have no allergies or intolerances, we eat both raw and cooked foods, and aren’t vegan. But we both do believe food is medicine (prevention is way better than cure!), and that the choices we make in our eating, and in our consumption in general, can have a significant impact on our health and on the health of this planet.
