In New York terminology, a "full-sour" kosher dill is fully fermented, while a "half-sour", given a shorter stay in the brine, is still crisp and bright green. They get a yellowy green. Good. By the way, they are fermenting but you don’t see too much bubbling. Also good. So as I mentioned we like full sour. If you want them half sour, this might be fine for you at day 5. This is the closest dish I have made to the peas and carrots salad you mention. I think you could prepared frozen veg or used canned and dress it in a similar style. You might mince in a little shallot, maybe decorate your molded creation with sliced hard boiled eggs or thin slices or radish and chives. The presentation in these salad is always so impressive! Wait Impatiently - I place my jar in a sunny window as I understand that the uv rays help to keep some microorganisms from growing. If the container is clear you will be able to see bubbles forming after a day or two. Test after five days to see if it is sour enough for your taste. The speed of fermenting will vary depending on the temperature of your room. Mine were ready in a week, but feel free to let this go a few weeks if desired.
