How to Use Rhea Concentrates: Swaps!
I never want to be in a kitchen that doesn’t have lemons and garlic. Along with olive oil, salt, pepper, and vinegar, lemons and garlic are kitchen staples – dare we say essentials – that are imperative to have on hand. Rhea Concentrates were created so that lemons and garlic could always be on hand, shelf-stable in the pantry, waiting to be incorporated into your next creation. Liquid Sunshine Preserved Lemon Crush and The Deep Fermented Black Garlic Concentrate can easily slip into your favorite recipes, replacing the fresh ingredients and adding an extra dose of complexity and nuance while still preserving the original flavor profile called for in the ingredient list. Here are a few favorite ways to swap in the Concentrates.
