Fermented Fennel & Cucumber Recipe…



1 large cucumber, halved and sliced

1 small fennel bulb and leaves, finely sliced

1 onion, halved and sliced finely

Juice of 1/3 a large lemon

3 – 4 tbsp. kraut, kimchi or kefir juice

Filtered water to fill jar

2 tbsp. Himalayan or sea salt



  1. Place all ingredients (apart from the water) into a bowl and mix well
  2. Allow to stand for 10 – 15 mins, which will allow some of the juices to be extracted from the vegetables
  3. Place into a sterile jar and add enough water to cover vegetables
  4. Make sure to leave about 2.5 cm’s at the top free
  5. Use a cabbage leaf, a pebble (boiled), a bag of water, some wax paper or something else to weigh the whole lot down below the liquid
  6. Leave for 5 – 7 days, bumping (opening to let the gas out) every day and then consume. Place in the fridge once you start eating from the jar
