It’s Good for Your Gut: Fermented Beets with Ginger and Orange Recipe
Have you tried fermented beets lately? Easy to make, subtly sweet, and even easier to eat to give your gut a boost at each meal, this fermented beets recipe is one of my favorites. I’ve added ginger and orange this time for some extra flavor.

- Toss beets, ginger, orange zest, and spices together in a mixing bowl.
- Layer this mixture into one quart mason jars. If using cinnamon sticks, put pieces into jars; then fill with brine. Everything must be below the water, and if necessary, weigh down with cabbage, kale, or collard leaves.
- Allow to ferment 7-10 days. Refrigerate, and enjoy daily.
