Probiotic-rich Fermented Carrots

Serves 12

  • 1 L warm water
    4 tsp salt
    4 carrots, medium, peeled, sliced 
    1 clove garlic, smashed (optional)

  • Instructions

Make a brine by dissolving the salt in water.

Place carrots into a clean canning jar, packing them in tight. Make sure to leaveabout 1 inch of head space at the top.

Fill the jar with brine, making sure to cover the carrots completely. Weigh the carrots down to make sure they don't float (you can use a "fermenting weight"). 

Close the jar and let it sit at room temperature for 1-4 days. The longer it sits, the more the flavor will develop. Feel free to open and taste.

Serve & enjoy!

Tip: Use this as a side dish, or even a snack.
