Ferment your potatoes and digest them too!


Potatoes make me tired and feel
just downright poopy. Unless! Unless I ferment them first! I imagine that a good portion of the starches are eaten this way.

Fermented Potatoes:

Cut up potatoes into fries, hashbrowns or for boiling. Don’t cut too small as they could ferment too fast.
Put potatoes in glass jar.
Add salt.
I added 1 tsp of salt per Litre (four cups) I did a gallon (4 tsp salt)
Fill with unchlorinated water leaving a couple inches of space at top.
make sure potatoes are all under brine.
Ferment on counter three days.
It will get bubbly and frothy and wonderful.
Then rinse and cook as you normally would, for potatoes.
I fried mine in real lard.
The trick to crispy potatoes is to dry them. Make sure they are very dry.
