Hey there! I was inspired by PreggieUBAC last week and decided to make some fermented broccoli with garlic. I chopped both up, put them in a glass jar, and then poured some boiled well water over them and added 1 T salt and 4T whey.

Problem is, then I forgot all about the jar and let it sit out for six days! Is that okay, or should I avoid eating it now? I'd like to be a little cautious since I am breastfeeding, but I feel like it might be okay. What do you think?

Was it covered/uncovered, all of the veggies in the brine, how large was the jar, any mold?

I was inspired too and made some up, I must admit it was not quite to my liking. I'm a broccoli person but it was too strong of a flavor for me. Maybe later down the road I will like it. When I made it it sat out for about 5-6 days covered (there is no way I could get away with the oncovered method, too stinky!!!). I checked it often to make sure it was doing alright.

Let's see-- it was covered, and I made sure that all the veggies were covered, though a few little broccoli tendrils could have started peeking out. No mold, and it was a quart sized canning jar about half full.
