My husband helped out in the garden of a local urban homesteading family and in return they gave him a bunch of cabbages. When he brought them home, I thought, what can I do with all of this cabbage? Well, of course, ferment it into sauerkraut, put in jars and store it. Well, its been 2 weeks now and I just pulled the ceramic lid off , took off the pressing stones and tasted the cabbage. Amazing! It tasted just like Sauerkraut...wait, it is Sauerkraut! I love when I experiment and I get it right! I have decided to leave it in for another week to continue fermenting. Once I have mastered it, I will share my recipe!
I am really looking forward to having Sauerkraut in my fridge all the time. There are so many benefits to eating Sauerkraut. It is an immune booster, a cancer fighter, a digestive aid and a flu fighter. I believe that a healthy body results in a healthy mind which equals a healthy, happy life.
