Lacto-fermented Grated Ginger Carrots

With their sweetness, carrots are a great vegetable to ferment. They take on the tang produced by lactic acid bacteria quite well and balance it out. With the addition of ginger, this recipe works well as a side dish or added to a salad.



  • 4 cups coarsely grated carrots
  • 1 tablespoon fresh grated ginger root
  • 1 tablespoon sea salt


  1. In a medium bowl, mix carrots, ginger, and sea salt. Knead with clean hands or use a Cabbage Crusher until there is enough liquid to cover.
  2. Transfer the mixture to a quart glass jar, pressing to submerge completely underneath the liquid. If necessary, add a bit of water to completely cover the mixture or use a fermentation weight to keep the vegetables under the liquid.
  3. Cover the jar with a tight lid, airlock lid, or coffee filter secured with a rubber band.
  4. Culture at room temperature (60-70°F is preferred) until desired flavor and texture are achieved. If using a tight lid, burp daily to release excess pressure.
  5. Once the carrots are finished, put a tight lid on the jar and move to cold storage. The flavor will continue to develop as it ages.
