Sweet Potato Ferment

Like Sweet Potatoes but want to eat it on quick notice (in other words don’t want to use your microwave)?  Try this easy and yummy sweet potato ferment.


1-2 sweet potatoes (peeled)
1 granny smith apple  (I don’t peel it but you can)
¼ or less of a teaspoon of cinnamon (I don’t measure you all know that)
a small, small pinch of clove (leave this out if you don’t like cloves)
1 pint jar or a quart (you will need to adjust the recipe for more.
Salt (I use sea salt only for this)
Fermenting Lid or Vessel (see my other posts on lids and such)


Grate your apple and sweet potatoes.  Put these in a large bowl and sprinkle with salt. 
Let sit for about 10 minutes (this helps pull the moisture out of the apple and potato) add your spices.
Stuff your jar full so that liquid covers the material. If it doesn’t you will need to make brine water and add to cover the material. Brine should be about 3-6% solution
Put your fermentation lid on and let it go until you like the taste (usually for me about 8 days or so, but you can go longer certainly.







You are so funny you don’t know by now?  You eat it!  Lol
