How do you quick pickle and ferment carrots at the same time? Easy, you just need sauerkraut brine, apple cider vinegar, and some fresh carrots! You can slice or chop the carrots any way you like. try adding in some jalapeno slices or garlic for flavor.


  • 300 Grams Carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 5 Grams Unrefined Sea Salt
  • 175 Grams Fermented Sauerkraut Brine
  • 75 Grams Raw Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 2 Cups Boiling Water


  1. Wash your fermentation equipment (jar, weight and lid) 
  2. Wash your chopped carrots in cool water. (You can chop them, grate them, cut them to whatever consistency you’d like).
  3. Place your kitchen scale on the counter. Turn it on and set it to weigh in grams. 
  4. Place a mixing bowl on your kitchen scale and tare/zero the scale.
  5. Add chopped carrots into the bowl on your scale until the scale reads 300 grams. 
  6. Remove the bowl from your scale. Add two cups of boiling water to the carrots and blanch for 3 minutes. Immediately strain the carrots from the boiling water after three minutes, and put aside.   
  7. Place your empty, clean mason jar on the scale, and tare/zero the scale. Make sure your scale is still set to grams and add 175 grams of Cultured Guru Sauerkraut Brine and 75 grams of apple cider vinegar to the jar. 
  8. Add the 300 grams of carrots, into the mason jar. 
  9. Place a small bowl on your scale and tare/zero the scale. weigh out 5 grams of salt. Then add the 5 grams of salt to the jar of carrots.
  10. Place your standard mason jar lid on the jar, and secure. shake the jar vigorously for 2 minutes.
  11. Remove the silver standard mason jar lid. Place your fermentation weight in the jar making sure to submerge the carrot pieces and weight fully in the liquid. 
  12. Secure the standard mason jar lid to the mason jar. 
  13. Ferment for 48 hours. Then remove the weight, secure a standard lid to the jar, and store in the fridge.


  • Taring/zeroing the scale with a container on it subtracts the weight of the container, allowing you to weigh only what is added to the container. After taring/zeroing the scale, the scale should read 0.0 with the container on it.
