I have become addicted to fermenting foods–ALL the foods! So when I was gifted with about a million lemons about a month ago, I had to find some great ways to use them! Of course, I turned to fermentation, which is a way to preserve your food so it lasts longer while (magic of all magics)—supplies probiotic goodness to your body! I’m a fan of fermentation because you have two great things going on at the same time: preservation AND raw health benefits and probiotics in your food to serve your body.
I’ve tried preserving lemons before, but I didn’t like the way they turned out because the pieces were so large. I tried this fermentation experiment a little differently this time! Here is how I fermented these two batches and the different spices I used in each one. Depending on how they are spiced, you can use them in different ways, and I’ll give you some ideas for ways to use them too!
