-To make your starter ferment 1L coconut water, almond milk or any other nut/seed milk overnight with
through the liquid. You may have to tamp them down or push them under the goji liquid.

Cover your ferment with an airlock if available. If not then make sure you check on your concoction periodically while you are brewing it to prevent explosions 😉

Leave your marmalade to ferment in a warm place for 2-3 days (just as if you were fermenting yogurt). Taste it and see if you like the flavour as it ages. The liquid may become clearer, more translucent over this period.

1/2 tsp of your favourite probiotic. You can use this “starter” to make 16 batches of yogurt or 16 new starters and 256 batches of yogurt. Math. Is good

Optional: Fresh very thinly sliced ginkgo leaves
