Can i add nuts?

Postby FermentMyGirlfriend on Thu Aug 24, 2017 4:50 am

I tried to do nut cheese:

Soak nuts -> mixer -> add little bit of starter -> let it ferment

So these nuts weren´t under water. And I didn´t like the taste. Maybe in the future I will cultivate my taste to some ferments more, but for now...

Can i ferment nuts in the water with vegetables?

For example some fermented salat with nuts, to which than i just add chicken and eat?

I tried it myself and fermented brazilian nuts with apples in salty brine.

There was bubles even around nuts! So I guess they fermented. But i use sugar in brine too.

After few days, nuts had that soaked flavor, that i already know from the past + apple flavor from the brine.

I´m still not 100% sure if carbs in the nuts really fermented, or if just nuts picked up the fermented flavor from their´s surrounding.

Please share your opinion, if nut lacto-fermentation in the brine works and so it´s benefitial, or not.

Because you know germans can ferment everythink :D, like eggs or sausages, but that´s not real, just thinks around ferment and eggs/sausages pick their sour flavor. It´s similar to giving food to vinegar. Thats not what i want. I want nuts to really ferment itself.
