Fermented Kohlrabi and Carrots

  • kohlrabi, end removed, peeled and grated
  • carrots, peeled and grated
  • garlic, minced (optional)
  • salt
  • other optional spices for flavoring, as desired

Combine equal parts grated kohlrabi and grated carrot and optional garlic and spices of choice.  Add salt at a ratio of 3 Tablespoons per 5 pounds of vegetable or 1 Tablespoon per finished quart of fermented veggie.  Massage salt into veggies until juices come out.  Put into mason jars (quart sizes are a great way to go).  Put lids on and set out on kitchen table and let ferment until bubbily.  Every day, open lid to "burp" the veggies and push them down in the jar.  After a few days to several days when you like the taste, store in the fridge for months of good eating.
