Humorous to me that the last post in the thread was ME posting about fermented pickled beets...Now I'm wondering if I fermented some by accident

We had a jar of pickled beets & ate them all.
Dh thought we could just add regular beets (canned) to the juice & they'd then taste pickled.
I didn't think they tasted pickled, so suggested I should bring the juice to a boil...add the plain beets....cool to room temp & then put back in the jar.
They taste "effervescent" to me.

Do you think they fermented??

I'm fermenting some kraut right now for the first time, so just joining in this thread. I did tabascos this summer.

How great to find this thread here. I am a newbie to fermenting and recently put up a quart of saeurkraut and one of kimchi. Interestingly the kraut totally failed - it went slimy and off looking while the kimchi is delish. The only difference in prep was the kraut was chopped by hand and the chi in the food processor. I am thinking using the processor released more liquid from the vegies, keeping the chi moist while it fermented.

I'm making sauerkraut right now, just in a mason jar. Last time I did that I went too long b/c I was expecting it to be soft like store-bought, but apparently it will stay crisp.

My tabasco did really well, I plan to do it again this summer and also siracha (found a recipe in a magazine for that).

I've done kombucha and milk kefir successfully this year, as well!

I just discovered the world of fermentation and found this thread. Read through the entire thing (in multiple sittings, lol).

So far I've only done sauerkraut but it's so good! I am going to do dilly carrots and beets next.

Anyone still fermenting?

This is my first try at the carrots... sounds like about 5 to 7 days to ferment is about the goal right?

I'm not fermenting at the moment. No one will eat it at my house.

anyone ever done a fruit kvass? http://www.rebeccawood.com/recipes/fruit-kvass/

I am trying a quart with strawberries. Looks super easy. And my dd needs some probiotics and this looks more deliciuos (in her eyes) than fermented veggies so I figure it's worth a shot.

I love fermenting, we have done dilly carrotts, pickles, kraut, kimchi, ginger carrots, sourdough, kvass, water and milk kefir, yogurt. Right now we have taken a break. I hope to get back to it soon once we rule out histamine issues with fermented foods. It's so neat to have learned so much and also what a huge roll these ferments play in a healthy gut and body.
