Australia’s 1st Certified Organic Raw Sauerkrauts

We are extremely proud and excited to announce that we are now Australian Certified Organic.

 This means that the Kehoe’s Kitchen range includes Australia’s first certified organic raw sauerkrauts, as well as certified organic cultured paleo/vegan tasty cheese and certified organic raw activated paleo bars.

Kehoes Kitchen ACO

In late October of last year (2013) we launched our commercial kitchen to provide healing and nourishing food to the people of Brisbane via our local organic market (the Northey Street Organic Market) with our gourmet range of Organic, Artisan, Cultured, Fermented and Raw, Paleo and GAPS foods.   Now only 11 months later we have obtained our Organic Certification and our products are available through many South East Queensland retailers.

As stated above, our reason for starting Kehoe’s Kitchen was to provide people with food that was nourishing and healing.  This is why Kehoe’s Kitchen have used nothing but the best certified organic ingredients in our organic range from the beginning.  It is also why we have made becoming Australian Certified Organic a priority.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our customers, retailers and online followers for your support.

Please note that RAW sauerkrauts are healing because they contain trillions of living beneficial bacteria.  You can find them in the fridge of your local health food shop.  All room temperature shelf stable/pasteurised sauerkrauts have been heat treated to kill the bacteria (good and bad).  They do this to provide a shelf stable product that can be shipped around the world.  That’s why it’s cheaper. Even if the product says it has been traditionally fermented, it has still been pasteurised and no longer contains any beneficial bacteria.

Sweet Spud Sprouted Buckwheat Soda Bread

This is my favourite bread recipe for so many reasons……

Sweet Spud Sprouted Buckwheat Soda BreadNot only does it taste delicious and is super simple to make, it’s structured from simple nutritious ingredients; buckwheat, sweet potato and chia seeds.

It is allergy free and free from gluten/grain, yeast, gum, sugar, preservative, dairy, egg, nut and oil.

I have made loads of variations of this recipe including wraps, loaves and pizza bases.  For those of you not familiar with ‘soda breads’ they are traditionally made with wheat flour, salt, bi carb SODA and buttermilk.  The reaction between the acidic buttermilk and the soda causes an instant rise/bubbling in the dough without the need for yeast, baking powder or egg.  I got the idea for this bread one day at my sons kindy when the teachers made a sandpit volcano erupt using bi carb soda, water, vinegar and food coloring.

PizzaPlease note that it is really important in this recipe to mix the wet and the dry mixes separately and to have the oven hot and your baking sheets, spoons etc ready before you combine them.  Remember it’s a soda bread and once you combine the wet and dry ingredients the chemical reaction starts immediately and you need to get your buns in the oven before they deflate.  Continue Reading →
