Fermenting a Rainbow

At the Farmers’ Market this morning I could not resist these beautiful carrots. I had just moved a batch of fermented carrots to the refrigerator and really did not need any more but . . .
Now these beautiful carrots are joining the other vegetables bubbling away in the kitchen. And a note about the Kerr lid picture above: I am experimenting with putting a small hole in the lid and covering it loosely with tape. As the gasses form during fermentation, the tape develops a bubble and the gasses escape. Then the tape settles back making a type of airlock.
