Vegetable Medley
This combination of cucumbers, carrot, leek and cauliflower is tasty, colorful and packed with vitamins.
  • 3 pears, peeled and diced
  • 3 cups cauliflower
  • 2 cups carrots, peeled and diced
  • 1 leek, sliced
  • 3 tbs ginger root, minced
  • ¼ cup 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 ¾ of an inch (2 centimeters) 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 to 5 days. If, after 24 hours, the liquid that has appeared 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.
