  • One of the most beneficial foods for restoring healthy gut flora, Sauerkraut is made from lacto-fermentation of raw cabbage and can incorporate other vegetables and herbs.


  • Perhaps the oldest alcoholic fermented beverage known to man, meads are made with honey, water and yeast; and can be made to include a variety of healing herbs.
