Can fermented foods be stored in pantry, vacuum sealed in jars?
I'm new to making lacto-fermented vegetables. If I were to make kimchi and other fermented vegetables, would anything be wrong with vacuum sealing the pickled vegetables in jars with a foodsaver jar sealer, and storing in the pantry, instead of a refrigerator? Or would they go bad a lot quicker than if stored in the refrigerator? I know that I could pressure can them, but I prefer live cultures.
