We’ve curated some ferments that add a little spice to life. Some of these are quickly becoming our favourite.
A back by popular demand seasonal kraut that is being crafted with locally sourced organic apples, a carefully selected blend of winter spices & a locally crafted apple cider from Northern Queensland.
Ingredients: Certified organic cabbage, certified organic apples, sea salt and blend of certified organic winter spices.
This aromatic ferment has a subtle sweetness & hints of spice that reminds one the comforting memories of freshly baked apple pie.
Due to its subtle flavour, we find this ferment goes well with most winter meals. Having said that,this is especially amazing with pork roast & roasted veggies or bratwurst with mash.
This antioxidant rich tonic is an one of a kind in house blend of Red Pepperberry Kraut juice with a 1 year ferment of kamquat shrub.
Ingredients: Red Pepperberry kraut juice (certified organic red cabbage, sea salt, wild harvested Tasmanian pepper berries) and Kamquat shrub (chemical free kamquat, certified organic raw sugar).
It has a subtle citrusy notes that compliments the deep umami fruity peppery flavour profile of Red Pepperberry kraut juice.
This tonic can be enjoyed straight from the bottle, splashed into smoothies, used as salad dressings, used to ferment vegan cheeses or even use to culture dips.
Ingredients: 100% Pumpkin seed oil
This family run business had been growing & milling Pumpkin seed oil for the last 150years in the fertile & pristine grounds of Solvenia.
Extracted from 100% lightly toasted chemical free Syrian gold pepitas, this dark and luscious oil is high in zinc, magnesium and heart healthy fats. It also takes on delightful nutty notes, clean on the palate and has a rich mouthfeel .
Drizzle on a chicken, strawberry & avocado salad, as a dip for crusty sourdough slices, whipped into cream cheese to make an incredibly delicious dip, added to a green smoothie for a heart healthy boost, or even to enjoy by the spoonfuls as a replacement for fish oil for its immune boosting benefits.
Keep your Gutsy fermented sauerkraut refrigerated before opening if possible. But if you can’t keep your kraut in the fridge for a while, it’s not a big deal. Fermentation is a preserving process so Gutsy kraut will keep for weeks out of the fridge. If you keep your kraut out of the fridge it will keep fermenting. The only problem is that carbon dioxide is a by-product of fermentation. So if keep your Kraut out of the fridge for too long, you may be sprayed with kraut juice first time you open it. It’s not an unhealthy, just messy.
Once opened Gutsy Kraut is best kept in the fridge. The only reason for this is to inhibit the growth of mould.
Our Gutsy Fermentery is based in Brisbane, QLD. If you buy Gutsy fermented goodies online, we’ll ship it directly to your door anywhere in Australia. When we ship your fermented foods box we pack it into a thermal box with ice packs. This keeps the ferments cool for a few days depending on the outside temperature.
The thing is that our Australian Summers get pretty hot, and if your package is traveling a long way your ferments will eventually warm up. As per the storage instructions above, it doesn’t matter if your fermented foods box warms up, it’s actually a good thing (as far as probiotics go). Just beware, if you’re ordering in the middle of summer, and you live far away from Brisbane (Tas or WA) your ferments might be a little fizzy when you first take off the lid. If this is the case, refrigerate the jar for a couple of hours before you open is. Hold it over a bowl the first time you open it and drink any juices that you catch!
Buy Gutsy Ferments Sauerkraut. Australian made, organic and unpasteurised so it’s highly probiotic. All our kraut is wildly fermented in oak barrels and jarred in glass. We ferment for a minimum of 4 weeks.
