Brave enough to care 03 part 2 fermented beets

It’s beetroot time!!! I am happy. This is one of my favorite recipes. I ate it as a kid. It’s one of the flavors of my childhood.

My daughter loves it. My friends love it. I have no doubts you and yours will love it too.

To ferment beetroots in Easter European way, you’ll need, for a half a kilo jar:

300 gr fresh beetroots

3 cloves of garlic

Water

Salt

Don’t pill beetroots. It's full of vitamins, minerals, and fibers that our microbes crave. Just cut tops and bottoms.

Then cut them half and then in slices. Chop garlic finely.

Arrange slices in the jar. One layer of beetroots followed with a pinch of chopped garlic.

Repeat the process until you fill the jar. Leave 2 cm of space on the top.

Mix water with salt. It should be saltier than you like..

Like when you put too much salt in the soup. Salty but not poisonous salty.

Cover veggies with brine. Close with lid.

Leave on the kitchen counter to ferment for a week. Fermentation time depends on the temperature. If it’s warm, it takes less time.

After that time, try it every day until tastes become more acidic and profound. Store in the fridge for up to 3 months.

Treat it as a salad or as a side dish :)) eat it with everything.

Beetroots are just amazing fermented but wait until you try the brine!!! It’ll be dense, sweet, and acidic. When we combine easily accessible minerals from fermented veggies with fresh vitamins (especially vitamin C) in our meals, our bodies can incorporate those vitamins and minerals easier and we get more healthy and we get much more energy from our food. Because we are not feeding our human cells but thinking about our microbes as well.

  • You can make Borscht - Russian, Polish and Ukrainian fermented beetroot soup.

  • Or you can add a few spoons to your orange juice in the morning. It becomes a heavenly drink. It tastes incredible and it's full of iron, manganese, potassium, calcium, and vitamins C, A, B, K, folic acid… <3

Don't forget: Beets are particularly rich in natural sugars, copper, folate, and manganese — nutrients that are needed for numerous bodily processes. They also boast antioxidants.

Once fermented, beets may improve digestion, physical performance, and heart health, as well as lower blood sugar and insulin levels.
