It's Cultured Mondays and this week I am happy to feature my first attempt at fermenting using my pickl-it jars. (I apologize for any blurriness to the pictures as we are having lens issues with my camera.)
I found these jars fairly easy to use and have ordered a few more sizes to try (I have 2 of the 1 1/2 liter size). I am looking forward to sampling the results in a few days.
My recipe is very easy and quick to make. This is enough for the two 1 1/2 liter pickl- it jars.
*Approximately 5 pounds of carrots, peeled, washed, and grated
*2% saline solution (4 cups of filtered water and 19g of pink salt)
*4 cinnamon sticks
*20 cardamon pods
*1/2 cup whey
Press the carrots firmly into your jar. Pour in your saline solution until it reaches the top of the carrots. Add your whey, cinnamon sticks, and cardamon pods. Assemble the jars and airlocks as instructed on the pickl-it website. Place in a cool, dark place for 3-4 days. Enjoy!
