I made sourkraut out of a Mexican slaw recipe I make a lot.  The other flavors seem to be lost in the process, next time I'll just make it with cabbage and salt.

I love saurkraut but haven't made it in a while, so I could not wait for this batch to complete. I usually ferment at room temperature for four weeks.

Today I am making two different recipes with similar ingredients.  Spicy fermented carrots and quail eggs.

Both will include whole cloves of garlic, sliced jalepenos, and onion.

I ended up using 5 carrots and about 37 quail eggs I think.

The original recipe I found for the carrots called for 3 jalapenos per jar, but I found that a bit too spicy, so now I do just 1.

I did one jar with carrots like the recipe above, and another just swapped out carrots for the eggs. They are really tasty this way and a nice protein snack to take on the go.

Do the next thing next. That's a pretty good rule. Read the tiny ad, that's a pretty good rule, too.
