Adventurous food lovers are invited to taste and learn about Mother In Law’s Kimchi and Farmhouse Culture Sauerkraut at Jackson Whole Grocer on Thursday, July 21 from 11am to 1pm.
These artisanal, fermented vegetables are the foods of the moment. Not only are they tasty, they’re good for you. These crunchy, tangy, fresh-tasting ferments are full of probiotics which help digestion and support the immune system.
Kimchi is a preserved vegetable preparation like sauerkraut, and in Korea, is traditionally served among an array of side dishes in every meal. But kimchi is more than just a side dish – its versatility also makes it an invaluable and flavorful ingredient in all kinds of cooking. Sautéed along side pork chops, flank steak tacos, scrambled eggs and added to stews, ramen, sandwiches, kimchi adds layered dimension and flavor.
While sauerkraut is better known than its trendy Korean counterpart kimchi, Krauts from Farmhouse Culture with modern flavor combinations like Smoked Jalapeno and Garlic Dill Pickle revive the soggy canned variety most people are familiar with. Like kimchi, kraut is delicious when paired with sandwiches, salads and soups.
