Fermented Nasturtium Seed Pods

Fermented nasturtium seeds are perfect for salads and pasta

Fermented nasturtium seeds are a gardener’s alternative to capers. They are easy to make, and add a ton of flavour to all sorts of dishes. Try them on salads, pizza or pasta.




  1. Mix the salt and water to form a brine.
  2. Gently wash the nasturtium seeds and put them in a sterilized jar.
  3. Add the culture and the brine. Add extra water, as needed, to make sure the seeds are below the brine.
  4. Allow to ferment at room temperature for 3-5 days.
  5. After fermenting, store in the fridge. Use within 1 month or pickle the seeds for long term storage.
