Fermented Carrot Ginger and Horseradish Relish

Hi, Happy New Year!
This is another totally tasty fermented relish.
I’m using grated carrots, grated ginger and grated horseradish.
It’s super easy, super quick, super cheap, you just need to be a little bit  patient as it ferments itself.

The first thing i do is to make the brine so it’s room temperature when I need it. I boil one litre of filtered water to 15g of salt Himalayan or sea salt but not table salt.I peel and grate 500g of carrots, I’m also using my all time favorite horseradish, finely grated and fresh ginger, making the whole thing taste so lovey and, ginger is fabulously anti-inflammatory.

Massage all the vegetables together and fill up your your Kilner jars.
Pack it really tight, really push the vegetable down.Fill up with the brine and you need something to keep the vegetables under water at all times.
I prefer to use a cabbage stem and leaves but you can also use a brine filled plastic bag like I did here.If the bag, for some reason split it’s just full of the brine that’s in there anyway so it doesn’t matter.
Put a little clip on the bag, push down your veg and close the lid.
Now you need a little bit of patience.

You want to burp these wild ferments now and then, maybe once a day or at least once every second day to make sure they don’t explode.
After seven to ten days in a fairly warm space you relish should be ready.

I love this relish, it’s so easy to do and it’s spicy and tangy and so lovely!
It goes fabulously well together with so many types of foods and it really elevates our health because it’s so full friendly bacteria.

Update 2017 with loads of fermented vegetables and your health will be in a better place than it was 2016!
