At the Santa Cruz Downtown Wednesday Farmer’s Market and the Santa Cruz Westside Saturday Farmer’s Market, Farmhouse Culture sells contemporary krauts and new special kraut juice shots ($1) and bottles of kraut juice ($5)!
I’m not sure if kraut juice is a hangover cure, an anti-oxident, pro-biotic, daily vitamin option or what but it’s a tasty pickle juice alternative! However, unlike pickling techniques Farmhouse Culture’s sauerkraut is not created from vinegar. Check out their website to read about their lacto-fermentation process and the difference between sauerkraut and pickles.
Their kraut is great too. We made a kraut and sausage pizza that was a real hit! We warmed the kraut and added it to the baked pizza crust as to not make the crust soggy!
