Red and glistening, fermented cranberries are an eye-catching and cheery addition to any holiday spread. These sweet little treats are tart-free and slightly carbonated once fermented. They look gorgeous piled high on a creamy wheel of brie and make extra special drink garnishes at the bottom of a martini or rocks glass. Garnish them in a festive bowl with some rosemary, and you're in for a picture-perfect party treat.
We found this recipe on Grow Forage Cook Ferment and wanted to make our own wild fermented version with no whey, brine from previous ferments, or starters.
12 oz bag of cranberries (fresh or defrosted from frozen)
1 orange, juiced (we used our Kefirko juicer tool)
1/2 tsp Kosher salt
1/2 tbsp ginger, grated
2 tbsp honey
1 cinnamon stick
2 cups unchlorinated water
1 wide mouth Mason jar with screw band (or checkout our rust-free Tough Bands!)
