Fermented Black Radish and Carrots (vegan) / Fermentirana crna rotkva i mrkva (vegansko)

I already gushed over my excitement over discovering the joys of lacto-fermentation in this post here, so if you’re interested in another easy recipe idea, keep reading on. Since it’s very important to have 2-3% of salt ratio to the total amount of all the other ingredients, I strongly suggest using a kitchen scale for all of your lacto-fermentation projects.

INGREDIENTS:

(0.81 EUR)

200 grams of finely sliced black radish (0.40 EUR)

200 grams of shredded carrots (0.40 EUR)

200 grams of water (–)

15.00 grams of salt (0.01 EUR)

METHOD:

In a bowl, mix together the radish and carrots. Transfer into a clean glass jar. Dissolve salt in water then pour over the veggies. Use a weight or a simple freezer bag filled with a bit of clean water to keep the veggies submerged. Leave the jar loosely covered to ferment at room temperature for about 7-14 days, out of draft and direct sunlight.

After the first day you’ll notice small bubbles starting to form and that means that the veggies have started to ferment. If you start to notice yeast building up on top, just scoop it up and discard, but don’t worry, the veggies are still going to be good. If, however, you notice mold, I would strongly advise discarding the whole batch and starting over.

After 7 days you can taste the veggies and see if they have fermented to your liking. For more tanginess, leave them out longer. If you are happy with the taste, close the jars tightly and transfer them to your fridge. The fermentation process will still continue in the refrigerator, but at a much slower pace. The refrigerated veggies will not go bad for months and will only develop additional acidity as time goes by.

Već sam ranije pisala o svojem oduševljenju sa radostima laktofermentacije u ovom postu ovdje, pa ako ste sada zainteresirani za još jedan receptić, nastavite čitati. Pošto je omjer od 2-3% soli u odnosu na ostale sastojke ključan za uspješno kiseljenje, moja vam je preporuka da u svim projektima ove vrste uvijek koristite kuhinjsku vagu.

SASTOJCI:

(6,05 kn)

200 g tanko narezane crne rotkve (3,00 kn)

200 g sitno ribane mrkve (3,00 kn)

200 g vode (–)

15,00 g soli (0,05 kn)

PRIPREMA:

U zdjeli pomiješajte rotkvu i mrkve, te ih preselite u čistu staklenku. Rastopite sol u vodi, pa prelijte preko povrća. Sa utegom za kiseljenje ili običnom vrećicom koju ste napunili čistom vodom poklopite povrće kako bi ono ostalo potopljeno. Teglicu labavo poklopite i pustite da sve fermentira na sobnoj temperaturi dalje od propuha i sunčevog svjetla 7-14 dana.

Već nakon prvog dana primijetiti ćete kako se u staklenci formiraju sitni mjehurići, a to je znak da je fermentacija započela. Ako u toku fermentacije primijetite da se na vrhu počinju skupljati kvašćeve gljivice, samo ih odstranite i povrće će i dalje biti skroz ok. S druge strane, ako pak primijetite plijesan, moja vam je preporuka da ipak sve bacite i krenete ispočetka.

Nakon tjedan dana kušajte povrće da vidite da li je zakiseljeno po vašem ukusu. Za više kiseline, ostavite da fermentira još koji dan, no ako ste zadovoljni, čvrsto zatvorite staklenku i preselite u hladnjak. Fermentacija će se i dalje nastaviti u hladnjaku, ali će biti puno sporija. U hladnjaku vam povrće može trajati mjesecima, a s vremenom će se samo dodatno zakiseliti.
