We are excited to share two new products with you: Caraway Juniper Sauerkraut and Masala Carrots. The Caraway Juniper Sauerkraut is not new to the farmers’ market goers but the look of it is new. The Masala Carrots are a new release tomorrow at the Larimer County Farmers’ Market. We will be sampling both. Please come by to give them a try.
Our Caraway Juniper Sauerkraut is the same delicious fermented cabbage with the addition of garlic, caraway seeds and juniper berries. The flavor is refreshing and crisp. The use of this sauerkraut is similar to our plain sauerkraut, it just has more of a kick. If you’re a connoisseur of sauerkraut you may like the different flavors this has to offer.
The Masala Carrots are pickled carrots and onions that have been spiced with Indian herbs and spices; garlic, ginger, lemon peel, coriander seed, fenugreek seed, cumin seed, fennel seed, Aleppo chili flakes, cinnamon, black mustard seeds and coconut flower nectar. The carrots are sliced, so the finished product is quite different and fun. We think they are excellent appetizers, great on sandwiches and perfect right out of the jar. One of my favorite things is the brine, it’s so delicious to drink and surprisingly refreshing on a hot day. We recommend you wait until your carrots are gone before drinking the brine.
We’ll see you at the market held every Saturday through October in Old Town Fort Collins and watch for these new products to hit the shelves of the Fort Collins Food Co-Op, Beavers Market and Alfalfa’s Market.
