Brine Pickled Celery Recipe
Usually for me celery is just a tool to get ranch dressing to my mouth but I've fallen in love with pickled celery. This ferment is very simple to do with much rewards.
1 small bunch of celery
2 garlic cloves, smashed
1/4 onion, sliced
1 bunch of fresh dill
Brine solution (4 tbsp salt in 1 quart of filtered water)
1/4 cup starter culture (Caldwell’s, whey or it can be left out if using a fermentation vessel like a Pickl-It Jar).
Trim celery and cut into pieces to fit your jar. Stuff celery in a quart sized mason jar (you might need 2 jars depending on how much celery you have). Insert garlic, onion slices and dill in between the celery stalks. Pour in starter culture and cover with salt brine to about 1″ from the top of the jar. Cover tightly and let set at room temperature for 5-7 days. Burp the jar daily to release built up gases.
