  • The week of the pickled veggie...

    So, went to the farmer's market this morning as per usual. And at my farmer's market we have this wonderful local vendor that has been in the business of fermenting vegetables for at least twenty years now.

    All I've got to say is... I now have sauerkraut, pickled okra, and pickled hot peppers in my possession. This is going to go down well.

    Anyone want a dish of probiotics with a side of vitamins, minerals, and fiber?

The metal in my head clangs and clings as I walk - freaks my balance out. So the natural thought is just clogged up. Totally clogged up. So we need to unplug these dams, and make the the natural flow... It sort of freaks me out. We need to unplug the dams. You cannot stop the natural flow of thought with a cling and a clang..."

      I do my own lacto ferments at home. GREAT stuff. So easy I've only had one "off" jar out of about 20 attempts.

          I'd do it myself, but I have a roommate who already complains about the smell of the stuff I get when I open the containers. Can just imagine the fuss he'd put up if I tried to make my own.

              Hahaha, yep. Fermented okra is in my possession. Aren't you just jealous?

                My husband loves kimchee and has made cold packed saurkraut in the past (I miss it) - other than that and beer, I don't have much experience with fermented foods. I am curious and want to try fermenting something - but is there an easy starter recipe that I could experiment with? I'm in southern Idaho, so okra is not an option, but zucchini is prolific and peppers are fairly easy to find...

                  You can ferment almost any vegetable you want really. Although, I'd guess certain leafy greens might not hold up so well, so I'd personally limit it to the more hearty vegetables. Bell peppers, great. Hot peppers, great. Zucchini and squash, great (but might take a bit longer unless you cut them up due to their tough skin). The booth I bought from also had fermented tomatoes. You see where I'm going with this.

                  I suggest you read this:

                  Real Food, My Way: Of Probiotics and Pickles

                  Awesome reference on pickling/fermenting fruits and veggies.

                  Bear in mind that the author is FAR from primal. She recommends fermenting green beans and other legumes (and well all know legumes are primal no-nos for the most part) and has some decidedly NON-primal serving recommendations for said veggies. But get past that, and you might just have the information you need to get started!

                              Okie-dokie, we'll get ya to my door swomehow.

                              The garlic recipe looks delish! Although I'm not sure if I could stand waiting four or five months...

                              I'm too impatient!
