  1. Wash and slice the beets, ginger and turmeric. Don’t peel the skin off, as it will help with the fermentation.
  2. If using a vegetable starter, dissolve the salt in ½ cup of water in a 1 quart jar. Otherwise add the salt after completing the fermentation. See notes for more details.
  3. Add in the starter culture along with the beets, ginger and turmeric.
  4. Squeeze lemon wedges into the jar, then add them to the jar as well.
  5. Add enough water to fill the jar, leaving 1 inch of headroom at the top.
  6. Use a weight to keep the beets submerged.
  7. Loosely top with a lid (or use a fido or airlock), and leave the jar to ferment somewhere dark for 3-7 days.
  8. Store in the fridge and consume within 1 month.
