Asheville-based fermentation educator and blogger Janelle Lucido-Conate is a firm believer that anyone with an interested mind and a jar can make fermented foods at home. Through her local workshops, which she calls “kraut parties,” and her website, ourdailykraut.com, Lucido-Conate aims to empower people to let go of their fears and experiment with the fascinating and delicious world of microbial food transformation.

Lucido-Conate recently joined Xpress in the test kitchen at Selina Naturally, home of Celtic Sea Salt, to share her method for making a very simple vegetable ferment: spicy pickled carrots.
