Fermented sweet potato


To support my compromised immune system, I decided last week to challenge myself with a commitment to eating fermented foods for 100 days. I’ve set up this tag on Instagram #100daysFermentedFoods and would love you to support me there! 

Fermented sweet potato
A delicious nutritious fermented food that's great for good gut health.

  1. 1 small sweet potato
  2. 2 small pieces fresh turmeric
  3. 1 small spanish onion
  4. 3 sticks cassia or cinnamon
  5. 1 teaspoon rock salt
  1. Chop all vegetables and pound together.
  2. Add salt and cinnamon sticks and pound again for about 5 min until moisture appears.
  3. Bottle in a wide mouth jar and weigh down with a smaller glass jar filled with water and tightly sealed.
  4. Tamp it down and cover with a clean cloth and seal with a rubber band.
  5. don't leave for more than 3 days.
  1. I added a cabbage leaf to the top of the ferment and put my smaller glass jar on top of that as and extra 'lid' of sorts.
  2. DEFINITELY don't leave for more than 72 hours in the tropics. Just taste a little each day as your ferment might be ready within 24 - 48 hours.

 This is after 24 hours of fermenting:


And here it is after 48 hours on the bench and 24 hours in the fridge, served up with a sprinkle of sprouted quinoa for my mid morning snack.
