I had one of those kitchen panic attacks a few weeks ago when I realised the sauerkraut batch I was making got mouldy and we didn’t have any left in the fridge. To put things into context: I have sauerkraut with my breakfast most days. Luckily, a couple of days later I found a discounted jar of sauerkraut in my local health shop. It was at half price thanks to the expiration date; I wouldn’t pay full price no matter how desperate I am, considering how cheap it is to make it at home.
On to the product. The brand is Life in a Jar, and what I got was a 290 gram (300 ml) jar of cultured raw organic vegetables, which included white cabbage, carrots, celery and onion, seasoned with mixed dried herbs, Celtic sea salt, and cultured with organic whey and filtered water.
The veggies were chopped a bit smaller than what we’re used to, but maintained their crunch. The herbs gave the product a very nice flavour, although I think “plain” sauerkraut is more versatile in complementing different styles of dishes. Overall not a bad product if you have the extra cash.
