Fermenting Greens

On Tuesday, we began fermenting sliced zucchini and cucumber. It's been really hot these days in Toronto and you can see the fermenting results in just 4 days! We are still going to wait a week before cracking it open but we started pickling some more and added hot peppers to the mix! We can't wait to try them...

  1. for fermenting sliced cucumber 4 days is enough, for fermenting whole cucumber you need 7-10 days

    1. Thank you for the information/tip! We appreciated it - specially because we are new at this!

    2. i must try fermenting zucchini

      recipe for traditional polish fermenting cucumbers:
      for 1 litre water - 45-55 grams kosher salt
      garlic 2 cloves
      roots of the horseradish 2-5 cm
      dill's flower or seeds
      2-3 leaves: blackcurrant, cherry (also grape, oak)

    3. Sounds amazing! We'll give it a try and post the results.
