How to Make Naturally Fermented Dill Pickles

Step 1:

Fill a pot with water enough to fill your jars. Add the garlic cloves, whole coriander seeds, black peppercorns, and bay leaves. Add kosher salt or sea salt. It should be one tablespoon of kosher salt for a cup of water. Stir well. Put on low flame for just a minute to dissolve the salt.

Step 2:

Add some of the flower dill to your jar or container, followed by the cucumbers.

Step 3:

Ladle the brine into the container. Fill it all the way up. Shake it a little bit to remove air bubbles. Make sure all the cucumber is submerged into the brine. You can place ramekin on top to make sure they don’t float.

Step 4:

Let it ferment at room that has consistent temperature about for about 65F to 75F for 1 week. Make sure to check it daily. Don’t be scared if you see air bubbles. If the level drops, top it with a freshly made brine.

Step 5:

After a week, you will see white particles forming on the top. Skim them out using a spoon. Taste and if they are fermented long enough, transfer to a lid tight glass container with the brine. Store in the fridge.
