Sue's Sauerkraut

When you think of fermented foods Sauerkraut is certainly at the top of the list. Traditional kraut is simply cabbage fermented with sea salt. Why not add some color and extra flavor? This is our favorite recipe for Sauerkraut!

Sue's Sauerkraut

4 cups shredded cabbage

2 cups grated carrots

2 cups thinly sliced onions

Place in a large mixing bowl and add:

1 tablespoon sea salt

1 teaspoon caraway seed

1 teaspoon celery seed

1 tablespoon minced garlic

Stir to mix all ingredients. Allow to macerate in bowl for an hour or two stirring occasionally. Sauerkraut is self-brining. The salt will draw liquid from the cabbage, carrots and onions to form it's own brine. If necessary massage with hands or use a kraut pounder to draw out more liquids. Pack in jars using proper weighting method. Ferment time: 2-6 weeks.

Happy Fermenting!
