Fermenting is one of the oldest techniques for preserving foods and is part of many current cultures today.
Lakeland have a range of fermenting jars which make the whole process really, really easy. The jars come in three sizes; 1.2 litre, 1.4 litre and 1.8 litre. The lids have a special valve to let the bad air out however not letting in any air or germs to ruin your fermentation. There is no need to 'burp' the jars as this is done with the valve.
After the beetroot has been fermented I think I will pickle it
I am now thinking what else can be fermented. I have a hankering after trying to ferment cherries. Keep checking out this blog to see how I get on with the fermented cherries.
The next step in my quest to feed my gut is to make my own 'live' yogurt. Fortunately Lakeland have a range of yogurt makers and even luckier I got one for my birthday last year!
I was sent a selection of fermenting jars from Lakeland but was not required to write a positive review. All opinions and photos are my own. No photos may be reproduced in any form without my written permission.
