I have made lacto-fermented ketchup before but I never knew you could make lacto-fermented French fries.
Jenny from the Nourished Kitchen blog just released these FREE sneak preview videos from her brand new online class, Get Cultured!
I’m excited to try Jenny’s recipe for French fries. I normally fry mine in beef tallow — but her “oven-fried” French fries look amazing! And using the oven is so much easier than frying.
Why Lacto-fermented Ketchup and Fries?
If you don’t already know about the benefits of fermented foods, check out my post on the Top 8 Reasons to Eat Fermented Foods.
At first I thought, why would you want to lacto-ferment potatoes for French fries? After all, you’re going to fry them anyway, so you won’t get the enzymes and probiotics that are normally found in fermented foods (like the lacto-fermented ketchup).
However, Jenny says that by fermenting the potatoes before you fry them, you’re breaking down or “pre-digesting” the starch which, which drastically reduces acrylamide. Acrylamide is a carcinogenic (or cancer-causing) chemical that is produced when you cook starchy foods at high temperatures.
Also, the more you reduce the starch, the crispier the fries will be.
I can’t wait to try this recipe!
