Rough Rice Ferment - Fire Tiger Tonic
With a nod to a traditional ‘Fire Cider’ (an age-old remedy for boosting the immune system), this potion combines; fermented turmeric, ginger and garlic ‘mother’ (6yo) w fermented chilli, apple vinegar, ume vinegar, quince vinegar and spices then is further aged. Take a spoon (or more) a day to keep your immune system in check or use as a punchy and acidic salsa (great finishing off stir fry’s or curry’s). Be like tiger.

Adam James is the owner, operator and creative genius of Rough Rice – you’ll find Adam, along with his amazing jarred ferments, congee and things on sticks in the Grub Hub, Farmgate Market most Sundays.
Whilst running Tricycle Café in Hobart, Adam became legitimately fascinated by the alchemy of fermentation. How with a little salt and time you can literally transform an ingredient into something completely amazing. He was mainly dabbling in quite simple lacto-ferments; pickles, hot sauces, sauerkrauts and kimchis, yet as a cook, the flavour profiles created were so so delicious.
From there hobby became obsession and Rough Rice was born in 2014.
