Description: Vegetables are preserved by a simple fermentation process. The prepared vegetables are brined using 2.0-2.5 percent equilibrated salt solution containing additives in a definite pack-out ratio. Fermentation is carried out using natural flora/pure culture of selected lactic acid bacteria for 2-3 weeks. The fermented vegetables having a pH of 3.2 to 3.5 with nearly 0.8 to 1.0% lactic acid is packed and processed by standard methods. The fermented vegetable retains good colour, texture and overall quality. Fermentation results in the development of unique flavour and renders the vegetable microbiologically stable for six months under ambient storage conditions.
