(2) In a medium l bowl, mix the tamarind and fish sauce together breaking up the tamarind and removing any seeds that you come across. If you need to add some filtered water to this process you may.

(3) Add the carrots, green onions, radishes, and bean sprouts to the fish sauce and tamarind mixture working them into a smooth combination.

(4) Mix the medium bowl mixture with your cabbage for one good final mix. Toss in your peanuts at this point as well and mix them in.

(5) Pack your Pad Thai Kraut into a half-gallon mason jar a little at a time making sure you pack it tight on the bottom. Continue packing it down leaving 1-2 inches of head space on the top.

(6) Place your Fermentools’ glass weight on the top of your kraut using it to submerge the contents under the brine completely. Assemble your airlock system and place your ferment in a nice warm place to begin its fermenting!

In about 2 weeks or so you can have the delicious luxury of adding a little Pad Thai to any dish of choice! Remember to taste your ferment as time passes! One, because it’s delicious, and two, to make sure you transfer it to the refrigerator when it’s sour enough for your liking.

My family CANNOT get enough of this ferment. My kids ask for it on every meal they eat. I will gladly indulge… except if it means we run out and then I cannot eat anymore. This is one of those ferments that are daily on our countertop, and when it’s switched to cold storage, another fresh jar takes its place to begin a new fermenting journey.
