Fermented Vegetable Kit (Add-On)

16 items left

Lacto-fermenting vegetables (think classic dill pickles or sauerkraut) used to be all about food preservation and eating out-of-season produce, but it can mean so much more. Fermenting veggies gives new life and flavor to the food plucked from your backyard garden or bought at your local farmers market. It’s easy, it’s fun, and it’s amazingly healthy.

Fermented Vegetable Kit Includes:

      • 1/2 Gallon Glass Fermenting Jar
      • Glass Fermentation Weight
      • Lid with Airlock
      • Kosher Salt
      • 2-3 lb of our favorite seasonal, organic veggies
      • Your item will be ready the week of 12/21. The exact day will depend on your regular Local Roots market or delivery day. You will also receive a confirmation email specifying the date of pickup or delivery after purchase.

The Problem

Like many shelf-stable products, store-bought pickles may seem harmless until you glance at their ingredient list. They often include preservatives, “natural flavors,” GMO corn-derived emulsifiers, and curing agents that can cause a range of digestive issues and allergic reactions.

Our Food Fix

One of the best way to preserve the nutritional value of your fruit and veggies is through lacto-fermentation, the process by which bacteria breaks down the sugars in foods and form lactic acid. Fermented foods adds beneficial bacteria and enzymes to your overall intestinal flora, increasing the health of your gut and digestive system and giving a much-needed boost to your immune system.
