Creating Curtido

Curtido is fermented cabbage with carrots and onions, similar to coleslaw, that is common in Salvadoran cuisine. In the next week or so we'll be having some pupusas. Pupusas are also a Salvadorean dish - a favorite of mine growing up. My (Guatemalan) mom made the best pupusas and curtido that I ever had! Pupusas are served with curtido, so we prepared two jars (below) to ferment. We also fermented a cauliflower and leek mix. We'll be sharing the recipe for gluten free pupusas in about a week when the fermenting process is complete.

Below is a photo from today's walk in the park. Enjoy!

  1. Your fermentation is inspirational, I am so getting on board!

  2. I just found you from I really enjoy your blog. I might even be ready to start fermentation.

    1. Thank you - and I definitely think you should start fermenting! Good luck. Let us know how it goes.
