how we make fermented veggies at home with these simple steps + new Vitamix blender

by purelytwins

Hello luvs!

Since we’ve gotten back into making our own fermented veggies lately several of you requested how we do it. And we are here today sharing how we do it. It’s really simple. If we can do it, you can too 🙂

Actually, we’ve shared how we made them once before several years ago.

How to make fermented veggies at home with these simple steps.

how to make fermented veggies at home simple and easy way with purelytwins

We are so happy to have fermented veggies back into our diet. We’ve been eating them every single day with our dinners.

Something we look forward to everyday. So far our digestion has done well with adding them in. Sometimes if we have too much of it we do get a little extra bloated. But overall we are pleased with the results of having them in our daily diet. Especially since we were playing around with our fiber intake and cut out a lot of veggies to see if that would help our constipation. And it has. We will give an update on that later, as today it’s all about fermented veggies.

Hope you enjoy our updated video. Plus at the end of the video we share a new kitchen tool that we got in the mail that we’ve been playing around with.

Simple steps to making fermented veggies:

clean and prep your veggies

slice using a food processor or hand chopping

place veggies into a large bowl

add in sea salt (we usually do about 1 tbsp per pound of veggies)

wilt down with hands

place wilted veggies into a clean glass mason jar

let sit on counter for 3 days

store in refrigerator and enjoy

If you have any questions please let us know!

You can pretty much make fermented veggies with just about any veggies you like. It is done pretty much the same way as making sauerkraut. Which we’ve been making that too!

We highly suggest you start adding in fermented veggies (and other fermented foods) into your diet as they aid in digestion and better gut flora. We’ve actually cut down on our probiotic supplement intake and rely now on our fermented foods and drinks to get our good bacteria in us! We feel we are doing much better!!

Now that you’ve seen us show you how easy it is to make fermented veggies… will you make them yourself now? Will you give them a try?

We also received something fun in the mail this past week. Love getting goodies in the mail, don’t you?

Thank you Vitamix for sending this to us! We are super excited!! We love kitchen tools! And we love all Vitamix blenders, so super excited to play around with this new one. Love the cute second blender that comes with it as it makes for the perfect grab and go container!  Great for making personal smoothies and such in there.

We’ve already made a few things with the new personal S series, which you saw in the video.

We can’t wait to make more goodies and share recipes with all of you!  So far we are loving this new S series blender. It’s so cute! Love how much smaller it is compared to the other model.

Perfect for home use as it doesn’t take up a lot of space.

Oh this is interesting… I’m skeeved out by commercial probiotics, lots of junk out there, so natural fermentation is the way to go! I used to make kimchi (with radish was my favorite) and this is the kick in the pants I need to start again!

purelytwins April 5, 2014 - 11:13 am

oh yes making homemade much better 😉 and we need to try kimchi next

I noticed in one of your pics you use a fermentation lock for one of your jars, is that for the kraut bc it has to go longer? I have one and just wondering if its necessary to use?

purelytwins April 5, 2014 - 11:14 am

aren’t sure if it’s really necessary to use the lock lids, we just like them, so we use them

OH MY GOODNESS. I really am SOO jealous that you got the new Vitamix!! I wish I had the personal sized one, since I travel so much! I love my 5200 with all my heart, but it’s a beast in the suitcase!! But I’m glad you’re enjoying it! WHAT FUN!!

So, no vinegar? That surprises me but I’m ok with that. 🙂 Envious of your new toy.

Thanks for the easy how-to! I just have a quick question. For the beets, do you cook them first and then shred them? Or do you ferment them raw with/without skin?

purelytwins April 30, 2014 - 8:03 am

the beets are raw, and we take the skin off
