As people are realizing the benefits of probiotics and consuming more fermented foods, sauerkraut is one of the most popular ferments. Kathryn Lukas is the founder and chief kraut officer of Farmhouse Cutlure, a sauerkraut which you can find at supermarkets as well as at farmers markets in the Santa Cruz area. Kathryn talks about how she got into sauerkraut making from living in Germany to how she founded Farmhouse Culture. One of the great things about the different kraut varieties of hers is she mixes together sauerkraut with the concepts of other ferments, such as kimchee, dill pickles, horseradish, and jalapenos to create a ferment fusion. Kathryn also discusses what’s involved in using organic, locally sourced, and non-GMO ingredients in all her products.
