Fall Fermenting Veggies


Fall Fermenting Veggies-
I made my Curtido a while back, and was wanting to make something else that wasn't spicy. After reading this Myhumblekitchen.com I thought I'd giver it a try. Lots of great vitamins and minerals, perfect for winter! I used one large bunch of Swiss chard, one bunch of kale, 1 thin sliced carrot, 1 large red onion, water and salt. That made two batches- one 1/2 gallon jar and one fermenting jar size, about 1 1/2 Qts. Just chop, alternate layers of veggies, smash down a bit. Very fast and easy! Now everything is fermenting away! Looks good! The hens really attacked the left over chard, and kale.

Some Anya fall cats naps-




And a fall breakfast- homemade banana bread w/pecans and Earl Grey tea

Love the chicken mug!

I am experimenting with sauerkraut this winter once my cabbages are ready. I am enjoying fermented foods much more than I realized I would. Thanks for sharing and your bread looks wonderful!

I love lacto-fermented anything but never thought to make such a mix; great idea! Love the kitty shots (always) and the mug.

I really want to ferment foods. I've seen those containers for sale all over. Thank you for this post. I may just try it next year. Does it omit much of a smell?

I love the mug! Where did you get the mug? Our kitchen is all chickens.

Hi Jen, there's no unpleasant odor because of the vapor lock. Ditto the regular jar. I got the mug at walmart.
