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*):
And here's a bit about what nutrients you will find carrots (2*):
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 shred very thin with our food processor:
Next comes the ginger & turmeric juicing:
Next comes the unrefined sea salt, those freshly extracted juices & also some filtered & revitalized water.
We let this mixture sit for few hours, pressed by heavy stones so that the salt pulls the juices out of the carrots. Sometimes that process goes throughout the whole night.
When the carrots soften & the juices come out, it is time to transfer the mixture into our fermenters.
After around two to three months, we open those crocks & after removing the weights we are treated to a sight like this:
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:
Along the the carrots we always end up with having some extra juices.
Those, we offer separately in 350 ml bottles.
Our Lacto-fermented Carrots are great on their own, but you can also use them in salads, like
