Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Wash and cut the vegetables into snack-sized pieces.
  2. Pack the vegetables into the jar making sure that they are 1″ below the top. The amount of vegetables that can be packed into a jar will depend on the type of vegetables. For example, cauliflower takes up a lot more room the carrots.
  3. Add in the salt and any additional flavours that you’re using.
  4. Add the culture and pour over filtered water, leaving 1″ of headroom at the top of the jar, while still ensuring that the vegetables stay submerged.
  5. Often the vegetables can be packed in tightly so that they don’t float, but if they are floating, use a weight to keep them below the brine.
  6. Allow to ferment somewhere cool and dark (around 18C is best). After 2-3 days the vegetables will have developed a nice flavour, while still remaining crisp.
  7. Store in the refrigerator and enjoy within 4 weeks.
