Let your imagination go wild.



The next great food? It's up to you. Get your veggies while they're in season (and probably cheaper), preferably organically grown. Combine two or more different crops. Dream up which spices, herbs and other ingredients that could make them different, delicious, original and fabulous. Then, while following our instructions for culturing, combine them for the maturing period. Don't forget to write down your quantities and proportions in case you want to make it again.

If it's a hit, share it with your friends, and us. We'll try to replicate your recipe
and if we think it's worth publishing on this site, you'll get credit and a free box of Caldwell's Starter Culture.
