Since ancient times people have been preserving their own foods. Fermented foods are a natural probiotic which helps promote great gut health by improving digestion, removing toxins and harmful bacteria with a natural variety of microflora and enzymes. Having kimchi, sauerkraut, pickled vegetables, kefir, or kombucha daily will have lasting benefits to your good health.
8oz piece of fresh gingerroot
1-2 tsp sea salt
1 cup rice vinegar
1/2 cup filtered water
2 Tbsp cane sugar
- Peel and thinly slice the gingerroot with either the vegetable peeler or a mandolin.
- Using a prep glove or a small ziploc on your hand, generously rub the slices with the sea salt. Let sit for 2 hours at room temperature.
- Meanwhile, combine the rice vinegar with the filtered water and cane sugar, stirring to dissolve.
- Rinse the salted ginger thoroughly and squeeze out excess moisture and pat dry as much as possible.
- Add the vinegar mixture and let ferment in an air-tight jar in cool, dark place for a week before storing in the fridge.
