Fermenting 101


1 head cabbage

Prep time: 30 mins +6 hours

3 bell peppers (any color)

1 clove of garlic

1/2 red onion

2 tbsp. salt

16oz. cultured whey

16oz. spring water


Chop bell peppers and onion, shred cabbages and mince garlic.

Rub your salt into the vegetables and let them sit in a large bowl for 6 hours to help draw out the juices.

Pack vegetables and their juices into mason jar and pour cultured whey over the top.

If the vegetables are not completely submerged add water.

Screw on a plastic lid and let it sit for 24 hours on the counter.

Every 12 hours "burp" your jar for one week.

After the first week let it sit for another 2-3 weeks always making sure liquid is covering your vegetables.
