Yes. A lot of stuff can be fermented.

See cucumbers and types of squash jarred for fermentation:

I hope you make pickled cucumbers and not gherkins.

Sorry, fermentation is not pickling.

Can you see that brown substance at the bottom of those jars??? It is dill. White spot in the first jar is garlic.

This means I was planning fermentation, not pickling.

Dill and garlic go well. Pickled cucumbers are made after fermentation.

You must be talking about a recipe I don`t know. :):):)

I also jar baby corn for fermetation.

Well, that's fine, but I prefer grilled corn.

Not if it's browned.

grilled corn.

This baby corn I mentioned isn`t suitable for grilling - too small.
However, it is perfect for making sour soup with fermented veg. Normally, it is based on cucumbers, however I added everything what was in the jar.

The span between jarring and making the soup is exactly 2 weeks.

I like the soup made of pickled cucumbers and potatoes the best. Pickling is fermentation.

Pickling isn`t really fermentation when vinegar is involved.

when vinegar is involved.

If pickled cucumbers are "kiszone ogórki", they do not need vinegar.

More preservation which I tend to prefer to fermentation.

If pickled cucumbers are "kiszone ogórki", they do not need vinegar.

Indeed, and more popular in PL than konserwowe or the rather mysterious kwaszone.
