It would be really good to have a number for making and cooking with Fermented foods (Kombucha, Kimchi, Kefir, etc.) (apart from the commercial preparation of them in 664.024)
Something in 641.4 for making Fermented foods and a subsequent derived number in 641.61 for cooking with Fermented foods.
AFAICS fermentation doesn't fit in any of the subclasses under 641.4
It's an area growing in popularity, with a consequent increase in books on the subject.


Good suggestion, Ann! I suspect it would go at or near 641.46, since it seems accurate to call fermentation a method of chemical preservation. I'll make a note for us to look into this, though I'd encourage you to get in touch if you'd like to get hands on!
