Beets are in season now! These are GREAT! Everybody loves to eat them, and they’re super healthy. The hard part is the 6 month wait. But it’s well worth it.
Probiotic Fermented Whole or Sliced Beets
- one bunch beets
- filtered water
- unrefined sea salt
- citrus zest
- 1 tablespoon grated ginger
You will need approx. 1 cup whey. The best whey, is left over from cheese or yogurt making. See my website pamstacticalkitchen.com for video recipes, Quick Mozzarella Cheese Home Made or Greek Yogurt Probiotic Home Made. Also you can strain whole milk plain store- bought yogurt, this will give you whey on the bottom, and a thick yogurt cheese like “Greek yogurt” on top. 3 cups of yogurt will make about 1 cup whey. Easy option is to put the straining yogurt covered, in the frig. overnight.
Clean and trim beets. Place in wide mouth jars. Mix 1 tablespoon sea salt and 1 cup water with whey, add citrus zest & ginger. Add water if needed to cover. Shake well, cover beets leaving about 1 inch of air space on top. Leave out for a week, or until bubbles start appearing. Refrigerate for approx. 6 months, slice and serve. Beets should be crisp but tender, with good color, and flavor. google – k2 unlimited content
