Default REC: Fermented Pickles


No vinegar, naturally fermented pickles. These turned out beautifully,
crunchy and spicy.

Here's the recipe I used.


@@@@@ Now You're Cooking! Export Format

Fermented Pickles

relishes/preserves

6 leaves napa cabbage
1 1/2 gallons boiling water
1 cup Kosher salt
1 tablespoon red pepper flakes; or to taste
2 tablespoons dried dill or bunch of fresh; or to taste
1 tablespoon peppercorns; or to taste
1 medium onion; sliced
7 kirby cucumbers
2 tablespoons roughly chopped garlic; or to taste

Bring the water to a boil. As the water is boiling wash the cucumbers.
Line the bottom of a 1 gallon jug or tub with a couple of cabbage
leaves.
Put as many cucumbers as will fit in a single layer on the cabbage
leaves. Add a big pinch of garlic, a handful of onion slices, a
sprinkling of dill, and a pinch of peppercorns. Put another layer of
cabbage leaves on top and repeat layering until the jug or container
is full.

Pour in the hot brine until the jug or tub is full. Slide a knife down
into the jar and along the sides to remove any air bubbles. Place a
lid or saucer on top of the cabbage leaves, and place a weight on top
to keep the pickles under the brine. They should be covered by at
least one inch of brine at all times.

Let sit at room temperature for 3-7 days. Taste test everyday until
they have reached your preferred taste.
Once they are to your liking; store them in their brine, in jars with
lids, in the refrigerator.
Refrigeration stops the "pickling" process and they can be stored in
the refrigerator for up to a year.

Now you not only have pickles, but you have pickled cabbage and onion
as well.
