Kelly I decanted the ACV this morning. Good apple flavor with mild acidity. The cranberry vinegar needs a little more time but has a good flavor.

I may try carrots. How did you prepare the carrots?

I am fixing to try a small batch of ACV. Thanks for your feedback Sara. I am excited to try it. As for the carrot, I cut them into appetizer size pieces (sticks), placed them in a 2 quart jar, made my water solution using 2 tsp Himalayan pink salt, then fermented about a week. I love them and family is getting used to them :)

Also I just made a quart of lacto fermented cranberry sauce. I used Carolyn's recipe on youtube homesteading family. I can not wait to try it.

Starting a batch of red cabbage sauerkraut in a quart jar with glass weights. Fallen behind in fermenting but hope to do more in 2019

For supper yesterday I had my home fermented red cabbage sauerkraut over a baked potato. I started the kraut on the 13th so it took 11 days to get it to where I wanted it. I have much better luck making kraut since I got the glass weights and fermenting tops. I make a quart wide mouth jar at a time.

I love making kraut. Next time I make baked potatoes I will try topping it. Sounds really good. I use mason tops but for my kraut I just use a large cabbage leaf on top and use the white plastic lids. Always works great. Use mason tops for things like cranberries or carrots.

On May 25 I started a qt jar of snacking tomatoes with Texas tarragon 'Mexican marigold'. Tasted it today and it needs a couple of more days before it's ready.

Should do a qt jar of red cabbage sauerkraut. Maybe next week.

This morning I started another batch of snacking tomatoes with Texas tarragon. I've already eaten half of the first batch. The secret for me is to stop the fermenting process before the tomatoes get too acidity for me.

Lisa, happy munching. You're the one I have to thank for getting me started fermenting little tomatoes.

I was given 4 cucumbers. One is too fat to pickle so I will slice it and use for cucumber water - a refreshing drink these hot days. The other three I will slice and using the recipe that came with the fermentation weights I'll try fermenting pickles in a qt jar with the weights for the first time. Recipe calls for fresh dill which I don't have so I am using rosemary.

Looking through my fermenting books I found a recipe for Swiss chard ribs. I ordered Swiss Chard today so when it is delivered I will prep the chard for later use and ferment the ribs. I always hated to add them to the compost because they are such a pretty red.

I have never fermented anything in my life. My mom used to make sauerkraut when I was real young and I loved it. I just read about about fermenting lemons and that sounds yummy. I have been kicking around the idea of making sourdough bread. I love the taste of it.

I was given okra from the garden. Found a recipe for brining and fermenting okra to I started a batch on Tues. Hope it is as good as the 2 day brined pickles I made.

Batch of red cabbage sauerkraut turned out so good. I think it's the best batch yet.

Checked the salsa from Lisa's recipe and it doing fine. The Swiss chard ribs should be ready mid Aug. On Christoph Kimble's Milk Street Cooking Show on PBS he talked about pickling;/fermenting Swiss chard ribs.

I did not like the brined okra so I threw it out.

Lisa's recipe for fermented salsa is a keeper - it's so good.

Been eating on the red cabbage sauerkraut so will start another batch soon. Must say for the time being it's nice to have room on that end of the counter and no pesty gnats flying around.

I have only fermented cabbage into sauerkraut. My mom had done it for years and now we use a new recipe that is even better. I have made apple cider vinegar for a few years now. I think that turns out great. Sara for your flying gnats, try putting out a small container of apple cider vinegar. That catches alot of them.

Yesterday I started another batch of brine pickles. I like to experiment with different herbs so I added fresh bay & Italian oregano. Later this week I'll start a batch of fermented salsa. It has become my favorite thing to ferment.

My pond, sadly to say! The heat is atrocious and everytime I walk my dog past the pond it is popping bubbles like a fermented jar of cabbage!!! :(

Diana I haven't heard of that before - a fermenting pond. I do know something about the heat - Texas is still hot.

Yes, Texas is as hot as us if not hotter! Just kidding about the pond, but thats what it sounds like! We are still very low on our rain levels here so the pond water is down and bubbly. So weird!
