Using raw cultured vegetables and juices
What do I do with it? It looks like a soup or a sauce!
It's the vacuum packaging that gives this soupy look to Caldwell's products. But don't be deceived. These crisp, grated or sliced raw cultured vegetables can be tossed into salads, served as a side dish or in a sandwich, or used in one of our delicious recipes.
How should I use the juices?
Drink full-strength in small quantities or mix with fresh vegetable juice, apple juice, or juice of wheat grass. For a delicious and healthy salad seasoning: Mix half and half with the salad oil of your choice (nothing else!).
I have a package of your cultured vegetables in my refrigerator and it is swelling. What do I do with it?
Because Caldwell's products are unpasteurized, living foods, refermentation may occur, causing the package to swell. But this is a natural process presenting no health risk. Re-fermented vegetables will have a slightly higher lactic acid content. We suggest you use the re-fermented product within a week because, after a certain period of time, it will not be as moist. On the other hand, if the package has leaked, letting the protective gas escape, you should discard it.
