Recipes for some of my favourite foods that I haven't been able to get at a market for years! Saved!
@zzz Availability of certain things varies wildly depending on where you are, it would seem!
@InvaderXan I've thought about trying my hand at kvass. I never had it but it sounds like an interesting bit of kitchen science.
@InvaderXan I, too have been following plant/fungus leather substitutes! I've found people doing interesting things with mycelium to grow plastics and 'leather.'
@ewankeep Yeah, all of these alternative fabrics are very interesting. I hope they catch on
I especially like the kombucha faux leather!
seems like a lot of work to make it, but so is turning animal skin into leather.
plants and fungi are the future! 💚
@StroomAfwaarts I've seen quite a few things like this recently. Another involved turning waste orange peels into fabric
