HEAD Fermentation is diplomacy`canning is a massacre.

	Living aboard Pino, and having power constraints
		forced us to look at alternatives
		Learned there are benefits to waiting..
			Ex: waiting for 3 weeks for lactic acid bacteria to slow-cook food
			long time to wait
			but lots of benefits
			Food preserved this way is still alive
			Is super flavorful/full of nutrients
			Uses no heat, little effort.
			Requires only salt/time
	Time is an incredible asset,
		With something like lacto-fermentation
			Gives a chance for bacteria to get to work
			A lot of food isnt easily digested by the human body in their raw state
			Bacteria labor day/night to make the nutrients available to you
	With canning...
		Process that preserves food too
		No waiting period to eat it...
		but there is a cost to this:
			Waste of energy/quality when food is cooked once for canning,
	On Pino, solar panels charge a small battery bank, powering all our systems
		because bank is small, we have to be mindful of our usage
		learned to live with these power constraints
			found that cutting down on usage was the same as double capacity.
		Forced us to look at alternatives
	Discovered the many benefits of doing things at a different pace
		Of letting nature do its thing
			Ex: waiting for 3-4 weeks for lactic-acid producing bacteria to prepare our food

			Preserving vegetables this way prolongs shelf life of food
			keeps vitamins intact

	It's a time-proven, and very underappreciated process.
	Preserving food by fermentation is like taking the time to build a small community
			in which we invite the microbes we want and don't let in the ones we don't.
	With something like canning,
		You don't have wait to eat it.
		But there is a cost to that:
			There is waste of energy/quality when food is cooked once for canning,

			Preserving like this uses more energy, while effectively killing all beneficial bacteria.
	Preserving food fermentation is like building a small community

	A note to say that canning isn't bad, it'll always be preferable to waste.
