It’s good for your gut: Fermented beets and ginger with 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.

Allow to ferment 7-10 days. Refrigerate, and enjoy daily.
