producer spotlight: sauerkraut from Farmhouse Culture

It’s no secret that we’re big fans of fermentation. Some of our favorite products are made through the age-old process of fermentation. One such product is sauerkraut—the tangy cabbage slaw of Eastern European and German origin, often used as a topping for bratwurst sausage and paired with mustard.

We’re proud to feature sauerkraut from Farmhouse Culture: a small, organic sauerkraut producer in Santa Cruz, CA, who crafts incredibly delicious probiotic-rich foods and beverages. Their classic sauerkraut follows a traditional Bavarian recipe, and is seasoned with caraway seeds for a distinct flavor. Locally sourced cabbage and sea salt undergoes lacto-fermentation, which creates naturally occurring gut-healthy probiotics.

 

In our Bratwurst & Apple Sauerkraut recipe, available to add to your box this week, we use Farmhouse Culture’s sauerkraut mixed with grated carrot, onion, and fresh parsley for a sweet and tangy slaw. We promise it’s so much more than just a hot dog topper. It has a lovely crunch and a refreshing tartness, and most importantly, it stands up perfectly to bratwurst, baked potatoes, and, of course, Dijon mustard—the ultimate condiment for kraut. Don’t forget to pair your meal with a good German beer (another gem of fermentation)! Cook, relax, and enjoy!
