Sauerkraut is finely cut raw cabbage that has been fermented by various lactic acid bacteria. It has a long shelf life and a distinctive sour flavor, both of which result from the lactic acid formed when the bacteria ferment the sugars in the cabbage leaves. And there are those who truly love it…and those who don’t.
But if you love delicious sauerkraut, there is only option that is THE BEST in Houston, Texas – Scotty’s.
Scotty Sheridan creates the best sauerkraut in Houston…hands down.
It is crisper and more flavorful than any sauerkraut I had ever had; filled with beneficial pro-biotic bacteria. It has never been pasteurized or had any preservatives added. Since they ferment locally sourced vegetables when available in specially designed ceramic crocks for a period of one week to three weeks depending on the product. Because he proudly sells ‘a living product’ Scotty only distributes to the greater Houston area.
Scotty’s Stout Sauerkraut and Kimchi began selling at local farmers markets and he has really developed a following. Now, several years later, Scotty’s friend, James, started collaborating with him and they now have their own facility for fermenting. You can now find their products at the grocery store, as well as the farmers markets.
But regardless how you get your hands on it, you can be sure they still make their products the same way – unpasteurized, using only the best locally grown and seasonal vegetables we can find.
