|In my younger days.|
Anywho, remember when I talked about my crock? (yes, that says crock.) Well, I finally made it 4 weeks and dove into my fermented veggietables. Boy, they are good. Or as good as fermented veggietables can be.
No, really, they are decent. And, they are good for you. They have lots of that -bacillus, -schmallicus culture shit.
If you are interested in making your own fermented veggies, it is very simple and you can pretty much ferment any vegetable you can think of: carrots, turnips, beans, cabbage, garlic, ice cream. I recommend looking at this website if you don't have a fancy crock to make your fancy concoction.
1 jalapeno chopped
1 large onion chopped
1 medium cabbage sliced thinly
8 carrots peeled and shredded
8 cloves of garlic peeled and chopped
1/2 apple peeled and finely chopped
1. Prepare all your veggies. I did it in 4 batches. I cut everything and put it all in an 8x8 pan (see pic in previous crock post) and squish all the veggies together, with some salt and a little agave, trying to get out some liquid.
2. Put each batch in the crock or jar.
3. Cover and let ferment in pantry for 4 weeks. Mine could have gone longer too, it would have made the ingredients not as crunchy.
Happy Fermenting!! I suggest watching a video online to get a better idea of what you are doing. But, you really should try, it is SO easy and if you ever buy these in the store, it costs $10+ for a pint. A pint people!
