Carrot pickles? For sure! You can do this recipe in minutes using one (or fewer) carrots or easily make even more. Fermented carrots are sweet (from the veg) and sour (from fermenting) and are great on their own, as condiments or added to a dish.
Fermenting onions in a salt brine turns onions into a slightly sweet, mildy tart and far less pungent treat to use in cooking or on top of salads. Plus, raw fermented onions don't give the eater the same lingering bad onion breath.
Crisp slices of red onion are marinated in a mixture of citrus juice, white wine vinegar, salt, pepper and allspice until tart and tender. Charred jalapeño and bay leaves are added to the mix to bump up the savory spice factor.
