In our newest creation, the humble cauliflower, is the star.
And the inspiration for this ferment comes from a famous Indian dish called Aloo Gobi, which features potatoes & cauliflower nicely seasoned with the whole palette of spices.
Cauliflower is quite a powerhouse among the vegetables. Just a few of it's benefits are listed in this lovely pictorial (1*)
In addition to all that, we love cauliflower, hence this ferment.
To make it, we start with these beauties:
As you can see, we save the young & tender leaves & we also use a bit of carrots:
We shred the leaves:
And the cauliflower, to which we add the unrefined grey Atlantic salt:
And a little bit of this:
And a touch of magic:
Finally all things are in place:
Now it's time to get a bit physical in order to draw some juices:
And it's time to put some pressure on:
Next day our mixture looks like this & it's:
And it's ready for our stone fermenters & some glass jars:
And now, like with all of our other ferments, we let them sit undisturbed for couple of months so that all the goodies have time to reach their full potency. And by all the goodies we mean the lactic acid bacteria, beneficial enzymes, vitamins & organic acids.
When the time comes, our Cauliflower gets transferred into our retail jars:
And now, it's ready for retail.
Here's a close up of the retail jar & of the label
