How To Ferment Fresh Berries

Just the other day I was re-introduced to something that my mum used to do way back in the day. I cannot believe I had totally forgotten how delish some fermented stuff taste. Yes you can go ahead and can your blueberries or maybe even make homemade jam, but you should also try fermenting your fresh berries.

This is a very simple recipe, that does not require any special equipment. You can use any type of fresh berries from blueberries, to raspberries and even blackberries. I would recommend that you actually mix your berries, as they all have different flavors. I love them on my pancakes, but you can also top yoghurt or ice cream. If you like to make smoothies, I understand these are great for that too.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • fresh raspberries, blueberries or blackberries.
  • sea salt
  • kefir, whey, kumbacha
  • mason jars
  • small bowl
  • filtered water
  • marker (optional)
  • honey (optional)
  • strawberries (optional)

You begin by washing and cleaning your berries, before putting them into your mason jars. Then I grabbed a small bowl and mixed all the remaining ingredients, after which you just pour the mixture equally into your jars. The space left in the jars is filled in with the filtered water, all the way to about one inch below the rim.

Screw on your lids and make sure it is a tight fit. Then for the fermentation proces leave the jars in a cool spot at room temperature for up to 48 hours. You can then transfer them into your fridge, do not forget to mark the jars with the date made. Make sure you enjoy your fermented berries within 60 days.
