Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Wash and peel the Carrots (6 2/3 cups) . Cut off the top and tip and slice them lengthwise. If possible avoid rewashing the carrots after having peeled them and place them on a clean surface.
Step 2
Select healthy and fresh Sage Leaves (4) , wash them. Weight the jar you are going to use to ferment the carrots and tare it.
Step 3
Fill up the jar with carrots, zest of the Lemon (1/2) , sage leaves and Filtered Water (to taste) . If you are not using a bubbler, airlock, leave a few centimeters from the top clear to avoid the jar leaking while it ferments. However, make sure all carrots are covered with water.
Step 4
Weight again the whole container, net of the jar, and add 3% of Iodine-Free Salt (to taste) on the total weight ingredients and water. To dissolve the salt, just take some of the water in the jar, place it a cup and stir the salt in, then pour it back in the jar.
Step 5
Close the jar with a sprouting cover. If you are using a standard cover, make sure not to seal it completely, let some air go in. Leave the jar on your counter to ferment for 3-4 weeks. Ideally the perfect temperature would be between 64-71 degrees F (18-22 degrees C). After a few days you should be able to see a few bubble forming on the surface. It is a sign that fermentation has started.
Step 6
Once ready, you can store the fermented carrots in your fridge for several months.
