    Thanks so much for featuring my post on sugar! This week I've posted a recipe for fermented shiso leaves, which remind me of all the different types of spicy fermented kimchi I enjoyed while living in South Korea.

    • Hi Dawn,

      Sounds super interesting. Fermented shiso leaves! You're so creative.

      Thank you for sharing with us this week.
