Notes

Chopped finely (almost minced) to make a relish-like condiment.

The peppers are from the Queen Anne "harvest" farmer's market. All other vegetables are from the U-District farmer's market.

This was dry salt ferment, but there was not enough brine to cover the vegetables, so I added plain water to cover it. I did not use brine because there was already 1 tablespoon of salt in the ferment, and I didn't want the result to be too salty.
