Add some delicious umami goodness to salads, morning eggs and alongside cold meats.


  • 250 g mushrooms, sliced

  • 2 bay leaves

  • 3 cloves garlic

  • 1 tbsp sea salt

  • 1 tsp kombucha or sauerkraut juice

  • filtered water


  • Place all the ingredients in a medium to large sized jar. Stuff the jar tight, packing down all the mushrooms, bay leaves and garlic tightly.
  • Add filtered water to cover the ingredients, with an additional inch of head space at the top.
  • Weigh down the mushrooms to stop them from floating to the top. I will either use a small ceramic/ glass ramequin or an organic weight like the core of a cabbage.
  • Leave to sit on your worktop for 3 to 5 days.
  • Move to the fridge and ensure that the mushrooms are always below the surface of the liquid.


  • The mushrooms will keep for two moths unopened. Use within 5-7 days once opened
