Nibble on it as you would on sour pickles. Or have it with a classic German Brotzeit. Use as a substitute wherever you’d use sauerkraut, or heat up with a little butter and a dash of white wine. Also great with fatty meats such as cooked ham or pork sausage.

Schnelles Grünzeug
Gardener Olaf Schnelle couldn’t have picked a better job for himself. “Working so closely with nature, doing something meaningful and productive is a beautiful thing,” he says, and we absolutely agree. His produce, too, is a thing of beauty. For the longest time, only close friends and restaurants were able to purchase the wild herbs, edible flowers and rare vegetables Olaf grows in his lush gardens. With Schnelles Grünzeug , he pursues an approach that is “more than just sustainable,” akin to the campsite rule of leaving a place better than you found it. In Olaf’s case, this means cultivating his gardens in a way that leaves the land more fertile, more biodiverse and all-around more healthy. Trust Olaf to bring a similarly discerning approach to his second passion, fermentation.  His carrots, elderflower sauerkraut and co. prove that ferments don’t need curcuma or ginger to be fantastically aromatic. For this, he has rightly been recognised as one of Germany’s pioneers in the field.
