Beautiful Fermentation


Beautiful right? The colors are incredible. Three ferments I started yesterday; they should be ready in a couple of weeks, but really ripe a few weeks after that.

Left-to-right: A shredded version of kim chi, Lebanese-style pickled turnips wth beets, and carrot pickles with whole chilies and ginger.

Yum.
