POST #879 CULTURED VEGGIES FOR FLU PREVENTION from Nourished Kitchen
Donna Schwenk, the author, says:”These are a little spicy, and a little sweet and sour. They are wonderful for digesting your food, building up your immune system, and helping your adrenals feel nourished. It is the flavor I love the best. I’m a foodie and it has to taste good! You can find Vegetable Starter Culture online or in well-stocked health food stores.”
CULTURED VEGGIES FOR FLU PREVENTION
Yield: 2 quarts (64 Servings) Prep: 5 mins 1 medium jicama 1/2 head cabbage 2 handfuls fresh spinach 1 medium apple 1 small onion 1 clove garlic (minced) 1 1/2 teaspoons unrefined sea salt 1 large orange (zested and juiced) 1 package vegetable starter culture
Shred or chop the first six ingredients and place¬† in a bowl and sprinkle with salt.
You can also layer it in the jar instead of mixing.
Firmly pack the mixture into 2 quart glass canning jars or a half-gallon jar
Then add the orange zest juice, and culture, and cover with water, leaving an inch or two at the top.
Seal jar tightly and let sit on the counter for 6 days and then place in the refrigerator
I haven’t tried this yet, but I will start it this week. I will use 2-3 probiotics capsules instead of the “vegetable starter culture”, which contains sugar and dairy.
