Dear Guest!
Welcome to my blog:
TOFALARIA'S FERMENTED VEGETABLES
My experiments with fermentation 

Fermented vegetables - sour, tasty and healthy - are popular in Eastern Europe. In Poland, where I live, there are three common fermented vegetables:

kiszona kapusta = fermented chopped white cabbage, sauerkraut,
kiszone ogórki = fermented cucumbers,
kwas buraczany, kwas z buraków = liquid of fermented beetroot, used for barszcz, traditional Polish soup.

You can buy them in every grocery in Poland and order in many restaurants. But homemade is better, of course. That's why we - my husband and me - ferment at home. And we use far more kinds of vegetables than only cabbage, cucumbers and beetroot. We love experiments!




My English isn't good enough to translate for you all the recipes. I'm sorry. I've tested some recipes with the Google translator. It may be useful. The only words that Google can't translate properly are:

kisić = to ferment with the lactic acid bacteria (and this word refers only to vegetables, not to diary),
kiszenie = the process of such fermentation, 
kiszony (kiszona, kiszone) = fermented with the lactic acid bacteria,
kiszonka (plural: kiszonki) = ready-to-eat fermented food.

In English there are no specific words for that process and that kind of food. Google translates them as "pickles" or "silage". "Pickling" is a completely different process, using vinegar. No vinegar is added while preparing kiszonki. We add only water and salt and the lactic acid bacteria make the rest of work. And "silage" means fermented grass used as animal feed in winter. ;) Sometimes kiszonki are called "vegetables in brine" - but remember that brine is just the environment to ferment the veggis.

All the recipes are vegetarian, 99% are vegan and gluten free. Feel free to ask any questions. We wish you succesful experiments with fermentation!
