Giveaway: Caldwells Fermented Veggie Variety Pack – $66 Value!!!

on July 9 | in Favorite Things/Giveaways | by | with 35 Comments

If Your Dietary Restrictions . . .

Require you to pack almond butter, beef jerky and coconut milk in your weekend getaway bag instead of non-essentials like, um, pants – this giveaway is for you.

If your last batch of kraut grew legs and moved to Guam because you forgot about it for, oh, three months - this giveaway is for you.

If you’re curious about fermented foods but not quite ready to take the DIY plungethis giveaway is for you.

Actually, This Giveaway . . .

Is for everyone, because I don’t know of a person who wouldn’t benefit from organic raw cultured vegetables. Not only does the fermentation process increase the macro- and micronutrient profile of already nutritious foods, it boosts the bioavailability of amino acids (including the antiviral lysine), and increases the potency of vitamins C & A.¹

Wait, have I mentioned yet that fermented foods are delicious? Because they really are, especially this Caldwell’s Sampler Pack from Wise Choice Market. If you’ve never heard of them, Wise Choice is an amazing company that ships frozen fermented veggies, raw cultured juices and starter cultures direct to your door. Freezing these specially packed pouches does not have any effect on probiotic and enzyme levels, so you can pop them in your freezer until you need them. So convenient!

OR . . . and this is my favorite part . . . you can toss them into your suitcase for a that getaway you’ve been dreaming of! They can be stored at room temp (unopened) if needed until you get to your destination’s mini-fridge, and will stay there happily for up to 6 months should you decide to extend your stay. If you decide not to come home feel free to transfer them to your freezer for up to two years, and make sure to send me a postcard!

So, What Exactly Is A Veggie Variety Pack?

Good question! It’s got a little bit of everything – la de da fancy garlic flowers, crispy German kraut, the “great root” of Japan, and more! Here’s the full breakdown:

(Pssst! If  you’re struggling with low thyroid function check out the last one on the list!)

  • Organic Fermented Garlic Flowers – Perfect for seasoning meat, pasta, dips, and making garlic flower butter! YUM!
  • Sauerkraut- Which you absolutely. must. try. with this one pot Oktoberfeast recipe. (A few notes: Add the sauerkraut at the end rather than boiling it to preserve the active cultures, use whatever sausage you like, and go crazy with the salt if you want to. Bah on the low-sodium bandwagon! Other than that, though, this recipe is seriously stellar.)
  • Grated Beets – Perfect as an accompaniment to roast meats such as beef and lamb, or paired with apples and goat cheese/ feta in this refreshing salad. Beets are naturally rich in folate, which is vitally important to women during their reproductive years as a deficiency can cause neural tube birth defects. The folate contained in fermented beets is considered easier for the body to absorb, making it an ideal source of this important nutrient. (P.S. Don’t throw the brine away! Boil some eggs, peel off the shells, drop them in the brine and leave them in the fridge for a week. Voila! You’ve got pink pickled eggs!)
  • Grated Carrots – Use it to make our family’s favorite spicy carrot salad. You won’t regret it, promise! (Omit the lemon juice/ apple cider vinegar and salt in the original recipe. You won’t need them!)
  • Sliced Carrots – For topping salads with, or dipping in some homemade ranch!
  • Red Cabbage – As a side for roast meats, or a topping for salads. The leftover juice blends well with olive for a yummy vinaigrette, too!
  • Daikon Radish With Ginger – Daikon is Japanese for “great root,” and indeed it is! Bill Daly of The Chicago Tribune describes it as “refreshingly crisp with a slight peppery kick,” rich in enzymes, betacarotene and vitamins C and E.
  • Black Radish - Not sure what to do with it? Omit the vinegar/lemon juice from the original recipe and make this black radish slaw!

  2. Jennifer Cirincione via FB says:

    Daikon!! just got some to ferment with some garlic…yum!!

  3. I can’t open the link. What is the vegetable? Daikon or black radish?

  4. Both, depending on which benefit your talking about Tina Lov Ing! Do you mean you can’t open the blog post or the link to sign up for the newsletter? The info about thyroid and detox benefits is in the blog post in the list of all the veggie ferments that are included in the giveaway.

  5. Jennifer Cirincione via FB says:

    Some great info on Daikon. -Raw daikon is abundant in digestive enzymes similar to the ones in the human digestive tract. These enzymes are diastase, amylase, and esterase, which are known to transform complex carbohydrates, fats and proteins into compounds that is easy to assimilate.

  6. Christy Shaffer-Belisle via FB says:

    I planted beets in my garden for this reason. I also have red radishes, but I think I need to go find some black radish seeds to plant as well!

  7. Jessica says:

    Thank you for linking to my black radish slaw recipe! :)
