Ingredients

  • 1 L warm water
  • 4 tsp salt
  • 4 carrots medium, peeled, sliced
  • 1 clove garlic smashed (optional)

Instructions

  • Make a brine by dissolving the salt in water.
  • Place carrots into a clean canning jar, packing them in tight. Make sure to leave about 1 inch of head space at the top.
  • Fill the jar with brine, making sure to cover the carrots completely. Weigh the carrots down to make sure they don't float (you can use a "fermenting weight").
  • Close the jar and let it sit at room temperature for 1-4 days. The longer it sits, the more the flavor will develop. Feel free to open and taste.
