Lactofermented Pickles

Updated: Aug 3, 2021




Naturally Fermented Cucumbers (Pickles)


Ingredients:

  • Pickling cucumbers

  • Fresh dill

  • Filtered water

  • Fresh garlic, peeled

  • Sea salt (NO table salt!)

  • optional: mustard seeds


Directions:

  • Slice the cucumbers (if large) or leave whole if on the smaller side.

  • Place cucumbers, fresh sprig of dill, 1 clove of garlic and 1 tbsp. of sea salt into a large mason jar. If you prefer mustard seeds, you can add these at this point too.

  • Fill mason jar with filtered water, leaving about 1 inch of space at the top of the jar.

  • Cover the jar and leave at room temperature for 7 days. After a few days you will need to "burp" or release pressure from the jar.

  • Store pickles in the refrigerator after 7 days.


Notes:

  • If you slice your pickles, try adding black leaf tea leaves, grape leaf, oak leaves or horseradish leaves to keep them crunchy.


*Always use organic, local and natural ingredients whenever possible.


With Joy,
