Preserving food with fermentation is an ancient process. Like canning and pickling, it’s easy to do in your home kitchen.

about Tangy Fermented Red Salsa
Fermented foods have significant health benefits; the good bacteria in fermented foods produce antioxidants (Antioxidants counter the effects of free radicals, which experts believe play a role in a wide variety of illnesses, including cancer and chronic inflammation) and are rich in probiotics, so good for your gut. Fermented foods may also produce compounds that lower blood sugar.
Health benefits aside, I love this recipe because it’s wonderful to have a great salsa on-hand. It’s the perfect condiment, from scrambled eggs to your favorite lunch salad. If you want more heat, switch to a Serrano or hotter pepper. I love the oregano, but if you don’t, chives or more cilantro or basil is delicious as well.
