New batch of Carrot Cake in a Jar starting its fermentation

leave a comment »

I made a double recipe, so two quarts (here in two 1-liter jars, so some room to spare). The recipe is the first in my reference post on fermentation. In fact, it was this recipe that got me into fermenting. As noted in that post, I doubled some of the ingredients. We just thought the spices, nuts, and dates needed a little more oomph. 

I did use a starter culture. This is a short ferment, so it should be ready in 4-5 days. 

Update: I decided it was done after 3 days (72 hours) of fermentation. It ferments fairly quickly — because of the sugars, I imagine (carrots, apples, and dates are all pretty high in sugar).
