Cultured Fennel and Green Apple

      • 2 Fennel bulbs
      • 1 Granny Smith Apple
      • 1/2 lemon juiced
      • 3 sprigs rosemary
      • 1/2 culture packet can buy at bodyecology.com
      • 1 scoop ecobloom can buy at bodyecology.com or organic sugar
Couple Cabbage Leaves Wash, chop and mix all vegetables and herbs together in a big bowl.  In a small bowl mix 1/2 cup water with 1/2  packet culture starter and 1 scoop ecobloom or sugar and let sit for 20 min.  Take a handful and blend with water to make a brine and add to jar, add culture water. Stuff into a jar and press them down hard, while pressing the vegetables will push the brine up over them, if you need more liquid add some water to cover then use some your cabbage leaves to hold veggies down and close.   Set on counter or fridge for 3 – 5 days and then put in fridge.  Should stay good up to 8 mths.   Everytime I culture water leaks out somehow and it smells strong the first day or 2.  I always put a towel under the jar and switch it out each day.
