How to Make your own Sauerkraut and Fermented Veggies

In this amazing video, our good friend Blythe Metz from Blythe Natural Living shows you how to make all natural fermented veggies + sauerkraut, all the while, rocking our Peacock Bella Dress.

Blythe is an Metaphysician, chef, entrepreneur, actress, artist and natural lifestyle expert. She began learning about the power of foods to heal the body in 2006, and hasn't been able to stop sharing the wealth. Life can be magical, especially when we consume the very best this earth has to offer and when we clear away the blocks we have in our energy patterns.

DIY: Fruit Window Display

Dried Lemons

We like to keep things fresh at our Flagship Store in the heart of Downtown Santa Cruz. This sweet smelling display is inspired by late summer, and long, hot days spent sipping on a nice cool lemonade. This easy and all natural fruit display would make an awesome decoration for your next party!

Dried fruit window display

What you'll need:

• Fruit! We used lemons, limes, and blood oranges • Fishing line • Time! • A sewing needle • Parchment paper

How to:

1. Slice your fruit up into about 1/4" thick wedges 2. You will either need to dehydrate the fruit or dry it in the oven at a very low temperature over a long period of time. If you are using an oven, turn it on to 180 degrees. 3. Lay the fruit out on parchment paper and toss 'em in the oven 4. The juicier the fruit, the longer they will need to bake. Flip and rotate the fruit every 1/2 hour or so. The limes we used only took a few hours, but the juicy lemons took all day. 5. Once your fruit is dried out you can string it together using the fishing line and a needle.

These would look great strung in a line as a garland or strung individually from the ceiling! If you're in the Santa Cruz area, stop by 1229 Pacific Avenue and check it out.
