Personally, I feel like fermented vegetables get a bad wrap. And it is mostly because people just don’t know much about the process. Fermenting vegetables basically allows enzymes to cause a natural chemical change in your food to break down sugars without oxygen.
This can be extremely beneficial as this process results in the generation of probiotics known to aid in digestion. Consuming fermented food can be highly nutritious as they contain many vitamins and minerals essential in a healthy diet.
So what exactly can you ferment? A lot! But some produce is better fermented than others. Some of our recommendations include Cabbage, Carrots, Cauliflower, Cucumber, Onions, Peppers, Radishes, Tomatoes, and Turnips. You can also add a variety of spices for a unique blend.
If you want to try fermenting, we recommend using one of our stainless steel fermentation kits. These are so easy to use, you can even travel with them. If you enjoy spending time outdoors this is the perfect way to use your summer harvest while on the go. Don’t let your precious harvest go to waste while you are enjoying all that nature has to offer. To enjoy more fresh ingredients on the road, take along a sprouting bag or jar.
