Fermented White Beetroot
Olaf Schnelle of “Schnelle’s Grünzeug” is all about creating edible landscapes. At his garden, you won’t find run-of-the-mill, bland veggies, but a stunning array of rare wild herbs and old variety fruit and vegetables, rich in history and flavour. Similarly exclusive is his client base: for the longest time, Olaf only sold his produce to good friends and high-level restaurants.
For this particularly treat, Olaf’s spectacular white beets are fermented with lavender, making for a delicious contrast. Yes, it does appear a little grey on the outside, but slice into it to discover delicate white marbling.
This product is raw and free of additives.
Great with liver and goat’s milk cream cheese. If you enjoy snacking on pickles, this will hit the spot. Or try it with anything you’d have with sauerkraut. Just heat some butter in a pan, add a dash of white wine and have the beets with fatty sausages and cooked ham.
