- 3 tbs (45 ml) ginger root, minced
- 2 tbs (30 ml) salt
In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients except the salt.
Place the mixture in your Mortier Pilon fermentation jar and press. Make sure to leave 3⁄4 of an inch (2 centimeters) of headspace between the vegetable mixture and the rim of the jar. Cover with salt.
