I ordered the Caldwell Veg culture starter as a curious adventure into the world of fermented vegetables. My enjoyment of sauerkraut, and (occasionally) Kim chee suggested to me that making my own relish would be fun, and possibly wonderful. Nourished Kitchen (online) has great recipes and photos, so I wanted to give it a try. What an amazing adventure! The starter is very inexpensive, and in no time I have made a beautiful looking tall jar of veg relish. It is crunchy, flavorful, and just amazing! I had no idea it would be so easy, or fun. I think I'm hooked! It was very good fortune to find Harvest Essentials online and have an easy order. My package has 5 more packets of starter, so I can try other vegetable combinations, or possibly sauerkraut. This will be an addition to many meals this fall and onward! So often I have some left over veg in the drawer and now I can look forward to a new way to enjoy them -- healthfully, flavorfully, and without extra cost or waste. Its a great bonus and makes me feel great to have a new tool in my culinary toolbox! thank you.
