A Basic Sauerkraut

An easy way to make your own nutritious and probiotic condiment. Feel free to experiment with both the vegetables and the seasoning.

  • Shred a large cabbage (the outer couple of leaves and the core can be composted) and pop it all in a mixing bowl with one and a half tablespoons of sea salt and a tablespoon caraway seeds (optional)
  • Squeeze and pummel it all for ten minutes to release the juices. The volume of cabbage will be greatly reduced but you should be left with lots of liquid.
  • Push the cabbage and its liquid firmly into a preserving jar, pop the lid on and store at room temperature for around five days, “burping” daily by releasing the lid.
  • Once ready, store in the fridge. It will go well with meats, eggs and cheeses or mixed into soups.
