I would like to make some. Can someone please recommend an easy recipe, for a first time fermenter?
I don't use whey. Thanks.
Wash your carrots and cut them into the size that you would like. Put them in a very clean quart jar. Mix a solution of 4 cups water, 2 TBSP salt. Pour it over the carrots in the jar, so that it covers them. (They may float a little, that's okay.) Put a lid on the jar. Leave the jar in on your counter for a few days. Taste the carrots. They will start to taste sour. If you want a more sour flavor, leave them out longer, tasting every day. If you like them the way they are, put them in the refrigerator. If you like you can add other flavors with the carrots at the beginning of the pickling process, like garlic, dill, peppercorns, etc. I like to serve lactofermented veggies with chopped fresh herbs like cilantro and dill (adding the herbs when I serve them.)
