Why did my veggies turn mushy?

| 0

Kham yeast on the veggies that have not been removed can cause soft ferments. High temperatures will cause veggies to go mushy.

 

Action:

  • Try to ferment at temperatures below 21°C
  • When culturing cucumbers, cut the stems because this can cause cucumbers to become soft.
  • Add an organic black tea bag in each jar or ferment. Oak or grape leave can be used to add tannins and keep the crunch.
  • Mushy veg can be used in soups or other “Bredies”.
  • Add more salt next time
  • Ferment for a shorter time period next time
