For those of you who have been following me you know I LOVE fermented foods! I am so excited to join my friend Kirsten from Cheerfully Imperfect and a big group for the 30-Day Fermented Foods Challenge starting on March 15th. I’m getting my ferments all ready and today I made some Fermented Salsa Verde. I couldn’t wait to share the recipe so here it is!
Fermented Salsa Verde
8-10 tomatillos- husks removed and quartered
1/2 white onion- chopped
Garlic-chopped (You can determine how much garlic you like, I used 5 cloves because I love garlic!)
Jalepeno pepper- seeded and chopped
Lime- zest and juice
Salt & Pepper
Warm up a large saucepan to medium and add some olive oil. Sautee up garlic and onions until onions are translucent. Add tomatillos and jalapeno. Season with salt & pepper and cumin. Add lime zest, lime juice and some water to thin out the sauce, and let sauce simmer for 20 minutes-1 hour. Season to taste. Once the sauce has cooked you can turn the stove off and let it cool. Once it gets to room temperature (very important so you don’t kill that lovely bacteria!) you can pour the sauce into a blender and add two tablespoons of whey. Blend up and the mixture and pour into a glass jar and cover with a paper towel, tea towel or even a coffee filter and secure with a rubber band. Let it sit on your counter for 2-3 days while it ferments. Once it is done you can put a lid on it and store it in your fridge. The fermented salsa verde will last for about 6 months, but I promise you it will be eaten before then! It is so good and a great addition for Mexican meals!
