Fermented Spring Carrots

Spring carrots are small, crisp and sweet, perfect for the fermenting jar! No need to cut them, just trim off the top and tip. They become sour and stay super crisp for months. I'm still experimenting and will let you know just how long they stay crisp, but so far they have beat cucumber pickles with crispness.
