Homemade sauerkraut
Ingredients
  • 2 cabbage, any kind
  • 2 tablespoon of sea salt not table salt
  • 1 grated apple
  • 1 tablespoon of caraway seeds
  • A mason jar
Instructions
  1. Shred the cabbage in a food processor or using a knife and put in a bowl with the sea salt sprinkled on top.
  2. Kneed the cabbage in the bowl so that it releases some cabbage juice as it starts to break down with the salt added.
  3. Cover with a tea towel and leave for 5 hours.
  4. Pour the cabbage and juice into a mason jar and keep pushing it down until the juice comes over the top of cabbage. If it doesn't add a little water.
  5. Close jar and check on your kraut every few days
  6. You should see little bubbles rising and a foam forming on top, this is the cabbage fermenting and producing very potent probiotics.
  7. Taste kraut after 3 days if it tastes sour and to your liking it is done and if you are new to fermentation this is probably about the right strength to begin with.
  8. After 3-7 days refrigerate and consume.
  9. The sauerkraut will keep for years this way.
