Probiotic Paleo Pancakes

Probiotic Pancakes

I love making finger food for breakfast because I can make double or triple the batch and keep them in the fridge for the kids and our lunch boxes.  I find that cooking in bulk means I don’t have to be in the kitchen all day everyday.

These are salmon, dill and sweet potato pancakes or fritters but you can change the recipe and use any veggies and herbs you like.  You can use yesterday’s left over roast meat or skip it and use mushroom for a vegetarian option.

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.

WILD vs Packet

SauerkrautsWhen people read my fermented sauerkrauts, dips, pesto and salsa labels and see that they contain just veggies and salt or fruit they sometimes say, is this fermented, there’s no culture? Can you use this one?

I get this question a lot, so thought I’d explain here as there are a lot of new starter cultures hitting the marketplace as fermenting is becoming popular and I’m getting requests to use them everyday.

I prefer Wild fermentation over using a starter culture. Wild fermentation means Continue Reading →
