...and the spangram was FERMENTED.

Clues used: 0



Hi Strands fans. This is a tricky puzzle if you're not into fermented foods. In fact, if it weren't for me immediately spotting KOMBUCHA spelt out along the top, I might have been left struggling.

That instant gift set me onto the spangram right away. FERMENTED starts halfway down the board on the left and snakes all the up to near the top right-hand corner.

Even with knowledge of what the theme was and the kinds of things I was looking for, this was still a bit of a struggle. 

YOGURT was a fairly easy one, as the spangram cordoned off the first four letters. And that led to me getting SAUERKRAUT and MISO to complete the bottom half. 

That left just two answers to find in the top of the board. Fortunately, I spotted KIMCHI relatively quickly which exposed KEFIR - otherwise I'm not entirely convinced I would have got it.
