Flu Prevention: Cultured Veggies


Flu Prevention: Cultured Veggies
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!~Donna

  1. If using the starter culture, stir together the culture and water. Let the mixture sit while you prepare the ingredients—around 10 minutes. If using kefir whey, add it when the recipe calls for culture.
  2. Finely shred the cabbage, jicama, apple, carrots spinach, and onion using a food processor or a hand shredder. Add to a large bowl.
  3. Add the garlic and salt to the bowl and toss to combine. Pack all ingredients into jars.
  4. Add the orange zest and juice, Cutting Edge Culture or kefir whey, and cover with water, leaving an inch or two at the top.
  5. Seal the container and let it sit on your kitchen counter, out of direct sunlight, for 6 days. After 6 days, place the container in the refrigerator.
  6. Check the vegetables every day to make sure they are fully submerged in the water. If they have risen above the water, simply push them down so they are fully covered by the water. If any white spots formed because the veggies rose above the water, do not worry. Remember, this isn’t harmful. Just scoop out the vegetables that have the white spots on them and push the rest back under the water.
Recipe Notes

  1. Do you use all the orange peel and if so do you eat it? I was looking at the recipe with cabbage and orange slices around the edges, do you eat orange peel in that recipe as well?

  2. Do you have to use Caldwell’s Starter Culture? I bought culture starter from Donna Gate’s website. I see that you do sell some of her products on your website. If I can use Ms. Gate’s starter, would I use the same amount?

  3. I just made this and put in 1/2 gallon container. I packed the veggies then added the orange zest and juice and then whey. They are just sitting on the top, should I mix the orange and whey into the veggies?

  4. Hi I found your website lately when looking for a sauerkraut recipe..Thankyou so so much for all your recipies.advise ect…Question, can I put cabbage leaves on top of the jar?i am trying to make the cultured vegetables,may God bless you for what you are doing.

  5. Hi,
    Just made this…and am wondering if it is okay if some of the apples and spinach float to the surface, or does it need to be weighted? And my lid is air tight, but nothing fancy. All good?
    Thanks for this great website and your story!
