These beneficial organisms produce numerous helpful enzymes as well as antibiotic and anti-carcinogenic substances. Their main by-product, lactic acid, not only keeps vegetables and fruits in a state of perfect preservation but also promotes the growth of healthy flora throughout the intestine."

Depending upon your recipe, add this with your other ingredients like salt and herbs to your veggies into a mixing bowl. Cover with cloth for 1/2 hours and then pack into a fermenting vessel. For using the Pickle-Pro Lids, you can add more water to completely cover the veggies, leaving one inch air space below the lid, two inches for watery veggies like cabbage. Some suggest adding sugar to this starter process to help the fermenting get started, but is not necessary as the fermentation process uses the natural sugars from the veggies.
