Mare vinegarus. The sea that has become sour.

Just about 6 months in, our heirloom tomato vinegar has reached a steady 5+% acidity, and will be put into a barrel, depriving it again of oxygen to mellow the sharpness and develop more depth of flavor. Already, its flavor is quite complex- tomatoes, honey, floral, and quite warm.

Way back in May, we foraged a bunch of ramps in Western PA. 🌱

Turmeric vinegar is starting! In the winter we usually make turmeric and ginger vinegar using the fall’s yield we have frozen- our tanks get a little full during the harvest months, backing up the schedule. It’s nice to smell the ginger and turmeric brewing. We were lucky to get our hands on some lovely friend’s bitter lemons they had growing too, right in the nick of time...this will be the first year we have sourced enough to make over 200 gallons of bitter lemon...it still kind of blows my mind that we are able to get these ingredients to use from local growers in such great quantities! #localfood #supportlocal #vinegar #fermentation #madebykeepwell #turmeric #ginger #organic
Happy New Year! Here’s to another year spent trying to catch lightning in a bottle! Stay sour friends!

It has been really heartwarming the last few weeks, attending markets and sharing recipes and vinegar with everyone- being a part of your holiday preparations and hearing your ideas and plans for gift-giving and table spreading.
We will be with our friends @bigbearcafe on Wednesday...then @birdinhandcharlesvillage with the OGs from @artifactcoffee and @woodberrypantry ... then finally with new friends @oilandvinegarfrederick on Friday for a last evening tasting...
But feel welcome to reach out to find where you can purchase, or for last-minute shipping...
And, as always, we are so thankful for your support, shopping small... #madebykeepwell #shopsmall #fermentation #vinegar #supportlocal #localfood

Dry concord wine. Ready for stage two.
Tempted to set some aside; the scent alone is intoxicating, always reminds me of almonds. 🍇🍷

Pink peanuts! We are so excited to try these Carolina African runner peanuts from @bradford_watermelons company in South Carolina. We’ve got koji ready. It’s a matter of months for a very special miso using this heirloom cultivar, recently making a return to growers in the south. A surprisingly intense peanut flavor. Because of the higher oil content, this will be a shorter fermented miso. Follow our other fermentation projects @whiterosemiso .
