Colleen and I do this and it is so simple and enjoyable! This is by far the best way to store veggies for winter months or to create cultured vegetables for purposes of enjoying more probiotics in your diet.
Make your brine by adding 1 Tablespoon of salt for every 2 Cups of water. Then pour in water until it covers your vegetables! It takes about two weeks for the vegetables to ferment and to be ready to eat. You can then place them in a refrigerator, or leave them covered completely within the same solution in your food-storage area. Should be a cooler area of your house.
