GOOBER COKE. big favorite down in GA peanut country.
you should get this book called Wild Fermentation:
seriously, i just registered for the first time on chowhound JUST to recommend this book to you it is so good. the book is very well written and very very accessible, not hung up on lots of professional equipment and exacting procedures, more like having a good time making your own healthy fermented food and enjoying it.
it has tons of fermentation recipes - drinks, foods, alcohols, all easily made at home, and some vegan tips too (though personally i can't recommend a vegan diet - in any case, fermented foods will at least help.)
good luck! :)
