Food, Family, and Fun in our little cottage…



I have no idea which is the correct spelling.  All I know is that is is lacto-fermented, delicious, and in my kitchen. What else is it?
Cabbage and carrots leftover in the food processor.
Lots of oregano, sea salt, and some whey. 
 I smashed it all down until it formed some liquid.  
Into the jar it went, and then the jar was filled up to the tippy-top with filtered water.  
A week later:
Super bubbly and delicious!  In addition, John had a stuffy nose and after he ate some, he said, “WOW!  This really helped open up my nose!”  Win!

  1. Do you use powdered whey in your recipes?

    Or do you use homemade whey?

  2. Ha! I have some of this on my counter right now. But I read somewhere that if you don't have whey, you can just add more salt. So that's what I did. It's 3 days old. Can't wait to try it!

  3. @JenniI used home made whey… although I didn't make it at home, it is from my milk farmer.

  4. @Zoë As soon as my current whey supply runs out, I am going to try it with just salt. Let me know how it turns out!
