|Fermented Ginger Carrots|
I like to use Body Ecology Veggie Culture Starter with my veggie ferment to ensure they start off with the right bacteria, as my main goal was to get the probiotic goodness into my son. It contains Lactobacillus Plantarum amongst 5 other strains of beneficial bacteria. This particular strain has been shown to assist with various gut issues of which I am sure has assisted my son. (You can leave this out and just add another tablespoon of sea salt or use whey if not dairy free).
For this version, I got a little lazy ;) so I put all the veggies straight into the jars and skipped the massaging step, it still works well with just carrots.
(I would definitely massage cabbage as it produces alot of juices)

Fermented Ginger Carrots
We love our fermented veggies at home and it's nice to have a little variation from the standard carrot veggies we always have at home for the kids. The addition of ginger is amazing, the ginger itself becomes a little tangy and sour and is so delicious. My kids stick to the standard carrot version, so I usually make a smaller batch of these just for us oldies.
