Step 1

Start with a clean, dry glass jar. Wash the jar and lid in warm soapy water.

Step 2

Prepare saltwater by combining sea salt and water. Stir well, ensuring the salt granules are fully dissolved.

Step 3

Prepare the vegetables by washing them in water. Remove any visible dirt and debris. Chop them and add them to the jar.

Step 4

Pour saltwater into the jar. You want to make sure that the vegetables are completely submerged in the brine.

Step 5

Place the lid firmly on top. Remember to label the jar with the date you started the fermentation. Leave the jar on your countertop for 2-3 days.

Fermentation success tips

Look for bubbles. The lactic acid during fermentation produces bacteria that release gases. These are visible as bubbles after a few days at room temperature. 

Fermentation success tips

A sour, vinegary odour is released if the jar is opened after a few days. Tasting your veggies will also confirm if they are ready to be moved to the fridge.
