Introducing: Raw Rutes 5 Liter Fermenting Kit

Homemade for your health

Fermenting is a time honored tradition, one with many health benefits to offer. Sauerkraut as an example, offers a supercharged dose of vitamins C, D and K. It also offers a dose of living probiotics that even the finest yogurts can't compete with. It has been found to help those a variety of health and medical issues like endocrine system complications and autism-spectrum disorders. Many fermented foods that are purchased in the store, whether beets, pickles or sauerkraut have been stripped of these living cultures through pasteurization. Additionally they often contain preservatives, excessive salt and even sweeteners like high fructose corn syrup. While all of this gives the products a great shelf life, it also robs them of being the superfoods they could have been.

Our new five liter kit offers an exciting opportunity to delve into fermenting your own veggies. It's easy, and actually pretty fun. Knead the cabbage and mix it with the seasoning packet. Stomp that cabbage to your hearts delight with the American Maple Stomper. After you've packed it all in the pot, fill the water channel around the rim, ensuring a tight seal that will keep the good stuff in and let the bad stuff escape. After you're done, document the project on the chalk label. The pot looks great on the counter, and makes it easy to keep an eye on your tasty edibles. If cabbage isn't your thing, pickle beets or red onions which are delicious in a salad, or make a batch of dill pickles that will knock your socks off!

We know you'll be coming back for seconds.

Cheers!

Introducing: Raw Rutes Sauerkraut Starter Kit

Erasable chalkboard label adds a fun touch       

Sauerkraut for beginners

Fermenting vegetables can seem intimidating at first glance. We've been raised in a culture that embraces all things pasteurized, homogenized, sterilized and stabilized. Anything that involves microbes, bacteria, or fermentation makes many of us a little uneasy. It wasn't always this way though. In the not so distant past, our ancestors learned to work with healthy bacteria and microbes to create Superfoods that had additional health benefits. It's really quite remarkable. As the acidity rises due to lactic acid-fermenting organisms,any pathogenic microorganisms are killed off, creating a safe and tasty product that is alive with nutrients. As author and fermentation expert Sandor Katz puts it: "Fermentation not only preserves nutrients, it breaks them down into more digestible forms." Sauerkraut truly is the perfect raw food!

 

If all of this information didn't ease your mind, that's where our fun little kit comes in. It takes the guesswork out of making your first batch of sauerkraut. One Cabbage(not included), one packet of seasoning (containing juniper berries and mustard seed, in typical German fashion), one packet of Cadwell's starter cultures (which ensures perfect, crispy results and leaves you assured that any harmful pathogenic nasties are long gone), a thick glass bail jar, chalk and label. Of course we've included step by step instructions for your benefit too.

 

 

We think you'll like it so much that you'll quickly graduate to our larger stoneware crocks, yielding even more tasty, crunchy and healthful sauerkraut and other veggies!

Cheers and happy shredding!
