  1. Peel the potatoes. This greatly reduces the chances of fermentation mold. Bake or boil potatoes and then mash them in a large glass bowl. Do not microwave.

  2. With a handheld mixer or food processor, blend well with yogurt and sea salt. 

  3. Cover with a clean, cotton cloth and secure with a rubber band. Leave the covered bowl on the counter for 2 days and then refrigerate.

  4. Fermented potatoes will last about a month in the refrigerator.

  5. Serve fermented potatoes with steak as an enzyme-rich side dish or with any meal where potatoes work well.

  6. Fermented potatoes may be slightly warmed on the stove before serving, but take care not to warm them too much or enzymes and probiotics will be lost.

Recipe Notes

Yukon Gold or red potatoes make for the tastiest dish! Sweet potatoes may be substituted for the white potatoes if desired.

Store-bought or homemade kefir may be substituted for the yogurt. Coconut kefir may also be used for a dairy-free version.
