Every couple of months my friend in the UK sends me and another member a BB box. This time I asked him to do some fermented swede and parsnip. If it fails then it is only a few pennies. I have not had Parsnip or swede for 9 years and am looking forward to it.

I have now decided to try to do some of the local veg like broccoli and cauliflower. Does anybody else ferment vegetables, do you have any tips.

I like mashed Swede with a little butter and roasted parsnips with my roast dinner. Of course I have mint sauce also. Yeh i would have eaten you share of the veg mate.

Nah.  That's fermented cabbage.  Swede is called rutabaga in the USA I think.  I love it cooked like mashed potatos but I have never tried it fermented.

Ahhh Rutabaga, yea it's good mashed or in a slow cooker with brisket or pot roast.

Dave, wouldn't fermented swede actually be compost? But we don't judge.:whistling:

To answer you and Old55. It is called fermented but it actually is salt water. Haha not like beer. I have had some sprouts from Germany done the same way and it makes the taste stronger in fact so much so that instead of the 8 or 10 I used to eat in the UK I only need 3 or 4 here.
