Honey is believed to be the only food that does not spoil. Honey found in the tombs of Egyptian pharaohs has been tasted by archaeologists and found to still be edible.
Fresh Food V's Fast
There are a number of contributing factors as to why we eat more fresh locally grown produce in the Tweed Valley and one of them is the availability of that fresh produce. It has been said that fresh food can also be fast food and we are blessed with the ability to get it from Tweed Fruit Exchange.
Sauerkraut – (fermented cabbage)
Raw, fermented foods are brimming with health-promoting probiotics and have been staples of the human diet for thousands of years. One such ancient food is sauerkraut; we are now seeing sauerkraut in our supermarkets, health food stores and green grocers. Here at Tweed Fruit Exchange we carry “Granny Frankfurters Wunderkraut” a local business here in Murwillumbah.
Ancient sailors took advantage of this readily available, portable and cheap food source by taking casks of sauerkraut along with them on long voyages to stave off scurvy. Shipboard records show that this condition was nearly absent on ships that carried sauerkraut.
Now scurvy is not something to worry about these days, but there is no denying that this cabbage dish is good for you.
I eat sauerkraut nearly every day usually as a morning or afternoon snack. My favorite is a couple of table spoons of sauerkraut, half a roma tomato diced, quarter of an avocado, diced and a couple of tea spoons of olive oil or sometimes I just add some sesame seeds and a bit of olive oil. Enjoy a healthy snack, try some sauerkraut today.
