Dilled Baby Carrots!

Dilled Baby Carrots
Recipe by: Jeanne Machin
Mason Jar Size: 64 oz.
  • 2 lbs baby carrots
  • 5 garlic cloves
  • 1 slices onion (white, yellow or sweet)
  • 6 branches of fresh dill
  • Dash of red pepper flakes
  • 4 cups spring water
  • 2 TB sea salt (no iodine)
  1. In the bottom of your ½ gallon mason jar pack the garlic cloves, ½ of the sliced onion, dash of red pepper flakes, and 3 branches of fresh dill.
  2. Arrange the baby carrots to fill the jar half way.  Stack them nicely like the photo below to fit more in your jar!
  3. Add the remaining ½ of onion slices and dill then top with remaining baby carrots until you are about 2 inches below the top of the jar.
  4. Dissolve your salt into spring water.
  5. Now add the water to the jar until the carrots are completely submerged, but don't fill to the very top of the jar.
  6. Cover with your Go Ferment kit and sit on the counter for 7 days.
  7. During the fermentation cycle the brine will become slightly cloudy, this is a good thing and a sign that the lacto-fermentation process is working!!
  8. Check your carrots periodically. You may get a white film on top. Do not worry! This is kahm yeast and usually develops. You can scrape it off or leave it alone - it's completely harmless!  Once you have your desired pickled flavor, place in your refrigerator and enjoy this healthy snack!

    Hi Dan! Sorry for the delay! We didn’t have the capability to reply directly to blog comments. It is for 64 ounces! We made the change on the post as well!

    At the top it says the Mason Jar size is 32 oz., but in step one of the recipe it says 1/2 gallon (which is 64 oz) — which one is it? Looks like a great recipe, whatever the case!
