I’ll let you in on a not-so-secret secret. I don’t like fermenting vegetables with whey as the starter culture. Something about the dairy smell of the whey mixed with the fermenting veggies is simply off putting to me. Rather, when I ferment vegetables, I either do a wild ferment, or I use a vegetable starter culture.
Have you ever used a vegetable starter culture? They’re wonderful. They help your veggie ferments get consistent results. (Nothing is more disappointing then making a familiar ferment and having it fail.) I use the vegetable starter culture to ferment raisin chutney, salad dressing, dill pickle relish, mayonnaise, mustard, and ketchup. You can use it to make sauerkraut or kimchi. Really, you can use it to ferment just about any vegetable.
This week, Wise Choice Market is generously giving away 2 packages of Caldwell’s vegetable starter culture and two 1/2 pound bags of a fine sea salt to use for fermenting to two of my lucky readers.
