Fermented carrots

Course: Side Dish
Keyword: Metabolic Balance, Paleo, Paleo AIP
Servings: 12


  • 1 liter warm water
  • 4 tsp salt
  • 4 medium carrots peeled and sliced
  • 1 garlic clove smashed


  • Make a brine by dissolving the salt in water.
  • Place carrots into a clean canning jar, packing them in tight. Make sure to leave about 1 inch of headspace at the top.
  • Fill the jar with brine, making sure to cover the carrots completely. Weigh the carrots down to make sure they don't float (you can use a "fermenting weight").
  • Close the jar and let it sit at room temperature for 1-4 days. The longer it sits, the more the flavour will develop. Feel free to open and taste.
  • Serve & enjoy!
