Lacto-Fermented Asparagus With Dill

Last year I received the most delicious refrigerator pickle recipe (containing vinegar). I've had great success converting pickling recipes into ferments...but there was something different about the flavor of this particular recipe. I finally figured it out! It uses dried onion instead of fresh. I used diced, dehydrated onions from our garden. This flavor combo would work well for asparagus, cucumbers, carrots, green beans or cauliflower. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

For each quart of fermented vegetables:

1/4 teaspoon dried dill weed

1/4 teaspoon dried dill seed

1/4 teaspoon mustard seed

2 tablespoons dried diced or minced onion

1 tablespoon minced garlic

1 bay leaf

Brine Ratio: 1 tablespoon finely ground Pink Himalayan sea salt dissolved into 2 cups of water
