Zucchini Pickles

If you have left over zucchini or want to add more fresh vegetables into your diet this is an easy ferment to make! This is a beautiful spin on a pickle using zucchini and onion. It also combines turmeric and caraway seeds which are both great antioxidants! This recipe came to us from Ilona in the Gut Health Guru’s Facebook Group!

 

Ingredients: 

 

- 1 kg zucchini, finely sliced

- 3 small brown onions, finely sliced

- 1/4 cup salt

- 1 tsp caraway seed

- 1 tsp turmeric powder

- 2 tsp mustard powder

 

Method:
