CULTURED CABBAGE JUICE
½ cabbage, chopped
4–5 cups water
¼–½ tsp. sea salt (Celtic Sea Salt is an example of good sea salt)
DIRECTIONS: Blend all the ingredients together. In a half gallon jar or a gallon-size pickling crock pour the mixture in, leaving an inch or two of room at the top. Place in a cool place and out of direct sunlight for at least three days and up to one week, agitating the jar daily. After day three, taste daily until the desired tartness is reached. Strain the liquid. Lid and store in the refrigerator up to two weeks. Fills one-half gallon jar.

HOW TO MAKE APPLE JUICE IN A BLENDER
Apples (about 8 cups or so)
Water (1-3 cups)
TIPS: In place of a nut milk bag one can use a cheese cloth or sieve or metal mesh strainer. However, nut milk bags work the best and not all brands are equal as some tear at the seam. When squeezing, gentle squeeze from the bottom to put less pressure on the nut milk bag's seam. The nut milk bag link is a good brand.
