  • 2 cups (500ml) carrots, peeled and diced
  • 1 leek, sliced
  • 3 tbs (45ml) ginger root, minced
  • 1/4 cup (65ml) salt



  1. In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients except the salt.
  2. Place the mixture in your Mortier Pilon fermentation jar and press. Make sure to leave at least 3/4 of an inch of headspace between the vegetable mixture and the rim of the jar. Cover with salt.
  3. Let the mixture ferment at room temperature, covered, for 3-5 days. If after 24 hours, liquid does not cover all of the mixture, add some water and a pinch of salt. Once the desired level of fermentation has been reached, refrigerate or serve.
