    Lacto-fermented salsa?

    Primal Fuel
    I has!

    And YUM!

    It has a sort of sauerkraut-like sourness to it but still maintains a good tomatillo salsa flavor. Talk about a great way to get your probiotics.

    You really CAN ferment anything!

    Nope. I bought it at a local farmer's market. But fermenting is fairly simple in general:

    You can basically apply the fermentation method to anything. I'd suppose you make the salsa of your choice as you normally would, and then just tossed it into the fermentation solution as you would with any regular vegetable. Nothing too special there!

    The basic recipe for fermented salsa in small quantities takes 4 tomatoes, 1 large onion, medium green pepper, 1 serrano pepper (can use jalapeno for more spice), 1 clove garlic, 1/2 cup cilantro leaves, 1/4 cup starter and juice of 2 lemons or limes. Chop to desired chunkiness, put in clean fermenting jar, pack down hard, cover tightly with lid or airlock. Ferment at room temperature for 2-3 days , refrigerate and eat.

    Not bad. Although the one I have is a green tomatillo salsa, not a traditional tomato-based one. And it packs a nice kick!

    But, yeah, any kind of salsa can be fermented for that sour "kick" on top of its usual flavors.

    I don't miss the corn chips. I use the salsa to top omelets, steaks, chops, you name it!

    I just harvested a bunch of tomatoes and I'm going to make fermented salsa tomorrow! Thanks for the suggestion it looks like the perfect thing to do with our tomatoes.
