The Fermentation Series Recipe: Fermented Sweet Potato

This recipe is for a traditional food Fermented Sweet Potato which I discovered recently. I was reading the book Cure Tooth Decay by Ramiel Nagel (no I don’t have tooth decay but still very good book and covers TMJ jaw disorder) and they mentioned fermented sweet potato, I then discovered a recipe for it in my Nourishing Traditions book by Sally Fallon.

The end product is so delicious and so nutritious, a great snack food and a superfood for the gut. The sweet potato contains prebiotic fibers which feed the good bacteria in the gut and the addition of either yogurt or kefir to ferment the sweet potato makes it a strong probiotic. This snack or condiment is perfect for the Vata dominant type in Ayurvedic terms because of its sweet, slightly sour, unctuous, heavy characteristics.
