Fermented Ginger Carrots With Garlic and Seaweed
1 kg carrots* (2.2lb) (15 medium carrots)
4 T salt
1 t ginger*
1 to 3 cloves garlic*
⅓ to ½ C dried seaweed (kombu, wakame, etc.)
Peel or grate carrots. Mince the garlic and ginger, and break the seaweed into large pieces.
Transfer to a glass jar or fermentation jar, in small batches, each time compressing the carrots with your hand or with a pestle. The liquid produced should submerge the carrots.
Place a fermentation weight on the contents. Close the lid without tightening it too much, to let some pressure escape during fermentation. Place the jar on a small plate to collect any excess liquid. Leave to ferment at room temperature for 3 days to 3 weeks (or more).
