    My First Foray into Lacto-Fermentation

    I've been thinking about making my own hot sauces, pickles, sauerkraut, etc., but the recipe for Hot Pulled Pork I posted pushed me over the edge and I bought a great kit from Masontops.com. Today I started 3 batches:
    1. Jalapenos, Spartan Apple, Red Onion, and Garlic. This I will turn into a hot sauce once the fermentation is complete.
    2. Plain Sauerkraut. Just cabbage and salt. Not sure how this is going to turn out as I got lazy and used the shredding wheel on my food processor. I should have probably used the slicing wheel or better still, just my chef knife.
    3. Sauerkraut with 2 of the 3 Cayenne Peppers I managed to harvest this year.
    Hopefully I manage to grow only the good bacteria. 👌🤔

      I'll keep you posted. Can't wait until the spring so I can get some locally grown pickling cucumbers and make some 1/2 and full sours!

      Good luck, I make fermented hot sauce every year with peppers i grow it is not difficult to do, I have also done fermented garlic but the garlic smell was over powering.

    It’s fun, and quite easy to make hot sauce. Here is a jar of Habanero in a brine for a few months, ready anytime now to make some hot sauce. Good luck. Click image for larger version

      Cool! I made an attempt at sauerkraut a while back, but failed miserably. Need to have another go. Lacto fermentation is great!

        My Husband spent an absolute fortune on various crocks to make sour kraut and pickles and had varied success with them. I found him a Crazy Korean crock and he has had 100 percent success since beginning to use it. It truly is a fill it and forget it kind of process AND very easy to store out of the way.
        Compared to the price of crockery pots it is a steal.

          Awesome - based on Hot Pork post, I also bought a fermentation starter kit but haven't had a chance to bust it out yet and likely wont be able to until January but also planning on a hot sauce being the first thing I make... likely something habanero based

            Two more batches of fermentation today. A 2 L batch of some assorted superhots, jalapenos, onion, Garlic, black peppercorns, and mango, along with what I thought were plums but it turns out they are "Apriplums". This batch I did with no brine, just salt and then vacuum sealed. Supposed to be a great method for fermentation.
