New round of ferments

Postby baerdric on Mon Aug 20, 2018 7:54 pm

Tomorrow I'm going to make a whole stack of ferments, mostly kraut and peppers. I think I've been doing well enough that I can risk making several quarts at one time, something I was hesitant to do before.

We'll see how it goes...
Currently looking at things and pondering about stuff.

Well, it is all in vats, buckets, jars, tureens, barrels, pots, or whatever by now, right? :) What have you got to tell us?

I doubt if I'll have many more things to ferment this year, unless I make wine from the wild plums that ripen a pound or two every few days.

This was the summer of making cucumber pickles, as I grew a very productive variety. I had to get a new strong shelf to house the pickles in my basement. The half sours are delicious times ten! I have yet to taste the full sours.

Oh wait, I might need to ferment some garlic. I dug 4.5 pounds this year and the pickle recipes barely made a dent on it.

My next door neighbor has suggested a fermented pineapple dish from his home country. I'll want to get more info from him before I proceed.

After it turns cold, I'll do some store bought red radishes so that I will have them for the Christmas table. I'll wait for the cold because winter is when I first did radishes, and it worked so well that I just want to repeat what worked.
