Category Archives for "Fermented Vegetables"
Yes, I know that a Zero Carb diet is “supposed” to be all animal foods. HOWEVER, I've been having some digestive issues as of late, and have felt the need to add a bit of fermented good bacteria into my system. We will see how this sauerkraut related cousin works…
The first time I made beet kvass three years ago, I was scared to drink it. This tended to be a theme with my first lacto fermentation experiments. So I had this half gallon of beautiful ruby liquid sitting on the counter, and then in the fridge, untouched.
Last week I took a few minutes out of my day I made sauerkraut (with no vinegar whatsoever). I had a green cabbage from a local farm. I shredded it, added salt and whey, and mixed it up a bit and pounded it (very meditative to pound a cruciferous vegetable, let me tell you). Was called away and forgot about it. A few hours later I mixed it and pounded some more and packed it into jars, and left them on the counter for three days. Voila! After about 20 minutes work, I have sauerkraut!
