Fermented marrows are great spicy side dish to meat or chicken dishes. But they nearly don’t have probiotics because they are cooked in salt brine not in dry salt. However, they are still useful for weight loss as contain a few calories and a lot of fiber.


  • 3 pounds of young vegetable marrows
  • 4-5 cloves of garlic
  • a big bunch dill (it is good if you have mature dill)
  • 3-4 fragrant peppercorns
  • 2 ounces of salt (without iodine)
  • 2-3 bay leaves
  • 3-4 horseradish leaves (not necessarily but it is good if you use them).

1. Remove the stem end of your marrows and cut them into 1-1.5-inch pieces.
