I added the probiotics because I wanted specific kinds of bacteria the good ones... I also don't want to pay for expensive probiotic supplements... the same reason I added the celery juice to it... It seems to be successful according to two friends who are most critical

I agree I would not add all the probiotics as femnetd veggies make their own.

Keep on track

My daughter does that! She has peppers and celery along with some others in gallon jugs on her counter fermenting. She bought a book about fermentation.

Coincidentally, I found this recipe this morning before reading your post and thought that I would try it adding some other vegetables to the cabbage:
kgi.org/recipes/home-made-sauerkraut

I don't think I will add probiotics since fermenting will make them, but I do have some whey saved from my homemade yogurt which I may add (I usually just use it to water my rhododendrums or as a substitue for buttermilk). Then again, maybe I'll just make the recipe as is, the first time.

I made my first batch of fermented vegetables... I added 3 kinds of probiotics and whey from my yogurt. I added freeze dried probiotics. and a 30 billion probiotic cap and another kind... small amounts of etch... I followed Dr. Mercola and Caroline B recommendations and juiced a bunch of celery to give it some liquid. I used a whole cabbage, half a red cabbage, bunch of broccoli a head of cauliflower , 4 to 6 carrots, some ginger a fist full, and a small onion, a red pepper, kale, and some wild apples... mostly things went through the food processor.. I used a ceramic crock pot and then put it in jars after about 5 day... tastes okay.

apparently if made with good probiotics it about an oz is several trillion probiotics compared to my supplement which is only 30 billion.
