Excellent results

This was my first try at creating my own cultured vegetables. I packed my cut vegetables in 1 litre jars and added the glass weight on top. I followed the instructions: dissolve 3 teaspoons salt in 2 cups spring water and dissolve 1 satchel of starter culture in 1 cup of spring water. These were enough for 2 jars. I had excellent results with everything I tried: 1 jar of fennel bulbs, 1 jar of quartered radishes, 1 jar of cauliflower florets with fresh oregano, lemon zest and dried chilies, 1 jar of cauliflower florets with fresh oregano, lemon zest and fresh chilies, 1 jar of julienned turnip plus julienned 1/2 beetroot plus garlic, 1 jar of julienned turnip plus julienned 1/2 beetroot plus caraway seeds (this one turned out to be my utmost favourite). I left them a little over one week to ferment, and they all turned absolutely delicious.

Looks so good...well done Michelle
