Please let me know if the freeze dried lactobacillus is easy to use as I am also interested in fermenting vegetables with less (or no) salt.

They used to hold these at the weekend. Would love to go but not on a week day.

Interesting to hear about a natural pectin that when mixed with calcium sets fruit... No sugar needed...
They didn't have it at the local shop which stocks Green living Aust products but are getting some in.
I did purchase the culture for sauerkraut aka fermenting cabbage without the salt that I usually use and another culture for use with coconut milk.
So I came away with info that has helped me.
