  • Valve - thanks to it WITHOUT CHEMISTRY

    Valve - thanks to it without chemicals.

    As a result of maturing, natural sauerkraut releases associated gases for up to 3 years. These processes take place thanks to probiotic and health bacteria living in sauerkraut, which have regenerative properties for the human immune system. Gases accumulating inside the sealed package would inevitably cause it to explode. Therefore, until recently, in order to pack fresh sauerkraut into a sealed bag, you had to stop the fermentation process (preserve), i.e. kill the bacteria that create the natural health-promoting microflora living in the sauerkraut by adding chemicals or pasteurizing or heating ... - it has finally changed. Thanks to the use of our proprietary, dedicated, ventilated packaging, we can now pack fresh sauerkraut without adding any harmful chemicals or heating or pasteurizing it, and take full advantage of the health properties of sauerkraut..

  • Hand packed


    Hand-packed product guarantees the highest quality of the product. The ensiled long threads of cabbage are not torn apart and visual and organoleptic control of the product is carried out throughout the packaging. The machine packing of sauerkraut is associated with shredding (grinding), i.e. breaking threads of sauerkraut, the length of which can be up to 30 cm. Tearing causes air or aggressive juice to get inside the structure of the pickled cabbage thread, which causes rapid deterioration of the product, loss of firmness, crunchiness, deterioration of quality and taste.

  • Unpasteurized, healthy and fresh

in preparation

A very old recipe for a perfect classic bigos

   Can be stored for a long time

   Preparation time 2 days

   For the entire family


You need to be prepared for a larger amount, as it includes a lot of meat, such as venison, hare meat, wild boar, pork, roast beef, poultry, wild birds, marinated ham. The more types of meat, the more delicious the bigos. The sausages are not suitable at all, and the smoked meats are raw. The remaining ones should be stewed (with species separately) in spices and roots on the bacon, adding onion


Boil 4 kilos of sauerkraut until tender with a handful of dried mushrooms. Add the loose flesh to the cabbage along with the sauce, a handful of pitted prunes and a few juniper seeds. Simmer until it blows up. Pour a glass of Madeira and season with 2 tablespoons of flour, fried with bacon. Cool down. Cook the next day. It can be stored for a very long time. Then, if necessary, reheat and serve for breakfast or dinner after the soup

Hunting bigos

Sauerkraut - kapusta kiszona

Kiszona or Kwaszona?

"Both the names "kiszona" and "kwaszona" are correct. The term pickled is historically the participle of the verb kisić pickle, and sour comes from sour. Historically earlier is the verb kwić (proto-Slavic kvasiti) 'to cause fermentation', while the verbs kisić kisicie is a West Slavic innovation. They have been attested in Polish since the 15th century. They have a common origin and the following meaning relationship: to acidify is to make something bleed, to choke."

— Krystyna Długosz-Kurczabowa, University of Warsaw



"Part of Poland is "kisi", part of Poland is "kwasi", some are about pickled cucumbers, some about pickled cucumbers. It is like the whole of Poland says that it is beautiful outside, for example, and the inhabitants of Małopolska traditionally speak in the field. Watching something is rather a national variant, and watching it as well, but the preference for watching also occurs in Małopolska. Souring and pickling are similar - different regions say differently. I am talking only about pickled cucumbers and sauerkraut, but I know that some people are talking about pickled cucumbers, and I cannot complain about it, because it is an allowed form. For example, while pulling the weeds, I will say that I was chaffing the garden, but there are people (in Mazovia, in the north of Poland) who rather weed. Weeding, weeding, pickled and pickled are always lexical variants that mean the same thing."

— Prof. Jan Miodek
