AN EASY BEGINNER'S RECIPE

Ingredients:

  • 3 heads green cabbage, shredded in a food processor
  • Several cabbage leaves
  • 6 carrots, large shredded in a food processor
  • About 8 cm piece ginger, peeled and chopped
  • 6 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
  • 1 packet of Body Ecology® Veggie Culture Starter
  • ½ cup warm (90°) water

Instructions:

  1. Dissolve Veggie Culture Starter with warm water. Add some form of sugar to feed the starter (try Rapadura, Sucanat, honey, Agave, or Ecobloom). Let the starter/sugar mixture sit for about 20 minutes or longer while the L. Plantarum and other bacteria wake up and begin enjoying the sugar. Put aside.
  2. Combine shredded cabbage, carrots, ginger, and garlic in a large bowl.
  3. Remove several cups of this mixture and put it into a blender.
  4. Add enough filtered water to make a “brine” the consistency of thick juice. Add culture starter mixture from step 1. Blend well and then add brine back into the first mixture. Stir well.
  5. Pack mixture down into a glass or stainless steel container. Use your fist, a wooden dowel, or a potato masher to pack veggies tightly.
  6. Fill container almost full, but leave about 5 cm of room at the top for veggies to expand.
  7. Roll up several cabbage leaves into a tight “log” and place them on top to fill the remaining 5 cm space. Clamp jar closed.
  8. Let veggies sit at about 20C room temperature for at least 3 days. A week is even better. Refrigerate to slow down fermentation. Enjoy!

We really are enjoying our Veggie Culture Starter! We wouldn’t culture our veggies without it. Usually, we do sauerkraut, but we cultured some beets this time too! It makes it easy to have successfully fermented vegetables. We recommend this product!

The veggie starter culture made some very tasty sauerkraut. I used a package of BE probiotics, red and green cabbage, and a little salt and let it sit on my counter for a week. Delicious!! Susanne in AZ
