Vitality cuisine

There is more to a revitalising holiday in the Stubai valley than just fresh air and outdoor exercise. Taste is just as important to the soul as food is to the body. Natura Vitalis Hotel Cappella is the perfect place to indulge without regrets, with the healthy delicacies of our vitality cuisine.

 

The home-grown herbs from our Hortus Vitalis garden play a key role in the Cappella experience. Not only do we offer themed hikes and healthy snacks, Sonja Eberharter is also happy to share her extensive knowledge of herbs, their properties and how to use them in the kitchen!

Drop by at the vitality corner to relish a wide range of locally-grown organic produce. Bring a healthy vitality snack with you on a guided tour for a small fee and do not miss the chance to sample or home-made preserves!

The Cappella vitality recipe

Plum chutney

  • 2,000 g plums
  • 100 g (fresh) ginger
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 tbsp. chilli peppers
  • 1 onion
  • 30 g salt
  • 250 ml fruit vinegar
  • 1,000 g sugar
  • 2 limes

 

Wash, seed and quarter the plums.
Peel the ginger and the garlic cloves, cut off the end of the chilli peppers and pound all three ingredients in the mortar. Peel and cut up the onion into little cubes.
Afterwards, mix all ingredients and let the chutney steep for at least six hours (best overnight).
Then boil on light flame for one hour, keep stirring and add a little water if required. Finally, fill the hot chutney into clean, well sealable glasses.
Hint: Enjoy the chutney with grilled or roasted vegetables or poultry.
