Our Lacto-fermented Carrots - pretty & delicious.
There are three main ingredients that make up this tasty ferment: carrots, ginger & turmeric. All 3 are very powerful health-wise, so their combination makes this ferment a powerhouse.
Let's look at those ingredients. First we will start with carrots.
When you type health benefits of carrots, you will find a lot of information. Here's just one visual to give you an idea (1*):

That is already quite impressive. Now let's add fresh ginger to it (3*):
And some fresh turmeric juice (4*):
Add to that the benefits of lacto-fermentation & you will have a better picture.
Let's start with how it's all done. First come these beautiful carrots:
These we slice very thin with our food processor:
And then comes the ginger & turmeric juicing:
Next comes the unrefined sea salt, the fresh juices & also some filtered &revitalized water.
Next, we leave the whole mixture sit under weights so that the salt pulls the juices out of the carrots. Sometimes goes that through the whole night. And finally we pack our fermenters with the whole mixture
And we make sure that the carrots are submerged in liquid:
Then we close the lids & say goodbye for at least a month. But usually 2-3 months.
When the month is over & we open our fermenters, this is usually what we see:
And when we remove the stones:
Next, we transfer the carrots into the retail glass jars.
And when that is done, the finished product looks like this:
Here's a close up of the retail jar & of the label:
