An Easy Ferment With Multiple Simple Uses
by Rachel Craig, OffGridHomestead.ca
I followed these simple instructions for Lacto-fermented Limes, but more than doubled the suggested fermenting time. Limes, lime juice, salt and apple cider vinegar with the mother are the ingredients. I am using Fermentools and a mason jar. Convenient tools for what has been a convenient ferment to have around.
After over a month they looked like lemons instead of limes, but smelled and tasted lovely, light and citrusy:
Probiotic Hummus: Use your fermented lime juice in a recipe like Vegan Lime Cilantro Hummus.
Lime w/ ACV: Having a watered down mixture of lemon or lime with apple cider vinegar is a daily ritual for me. There’s a sweeter version from Gnowfglins for those who need it to be more palatable.
Juicing: You may need to quarter your lime in case the skin is too much to handle for your juicer. No need to peel. The pulp and the yellow/green zest should be totally pulverized.
Dip: Cilantro Lime Dip
Salad: Raw Citrus Beet Salad
Rice: CopyCat Chipotle Lime Rice Recipe in which lime is added to warm rice.
Remedy: Gingerade recipe for cold and flu relief.
This is my favourite ferment yet, as it’s super easy to incorporate into one’s everyday diet!by
