Fermented vegetables are an incredible way to add probiotics, more nutrition and a deeper delicious flavour to all your meals (hint: especially good for you when added to unhealthy food for a digestive boost).
To start off the Summer Ferment-A-Month Club, in June we had a Dilly-Carrot-Kraut and nothing but the kraut this month (no pickles), unless you have a dietary restriction or allergy… I suggest the dilly kraut!! Dill weed is a seasonal food known as a cooling digestive herb. Especially if this is your first time eating ferments on a regular, this is a great starter kraut. It also offers a delicious flavour addition to salad, eggs, avocado toast, or on top of boring lentils & rice.
For July we had Dilly Pickles & Purple Caraway Kraut. With all sorts of Apple Cider Kefir pop.
AUGUST Full Moon FERMENTS MENU:
Zucchini Onion Kraut – This ALL LOCAL & ORGANIC sauerkraut is made with fresh Thyme, zucchini, kale, green & yellow onions, and pink salt of course. It is a delicious condiment that pairs well with anything especially eggs and pasta! I enjoy it as a dipping kraut on crackers and cheese.
Dilly Carrot Kraut – I made more! I had a custom order after the first month’s recipe was such a hit and I have plenty to spare now! Available in 500ml sizes. Read info above on the virtues of this fermented good. That dill though!
Rhubarb Salsa Kraut – Soft in texture with a tart and tangy taste! The rhubarb is from a friend’s garden, bell peppers are organic as well as the onions & garlic. No spicy chilies were added, we did it for the kids sake 🙂 Only a limited quantity is available for this selection. Pairs well with tacos, nachos.. and anywhere salsa normally goes!
Sauerkraut prices: 500ml $15 1 Litre $25
I was asked last week “why so high”… it’s because of the high price of organic, non-GMO, local produce that I pour into every batch. I also hand craft & chop the vegetables. I am a master fermenter and every step of the fermenting process is calculated… small batch = big love. I appreciate you supporting my local, small business.
KEFIR Probiotic POP! This month the kefir pop is Saskatoon Berry Basil Apple Cider! It is beyond delicious and the Saskatoons are LOCAL!!! Picked by my crew at the Happy Acres U-Pick in Spruce Grove. The Basil was also grown fresh by moi on my Tower Garden.
Probiotic POP prices: 355ml $5 1 Litre Growlers $15
