First time trying to make cabbage sauerkraut.
Made easy , quick and simplest way possible
While you can make with just cabbage and salt, you can be creative and any vegetable, fruit add any spice of your taste.
I am making cabbage sauerkraut adding following ingredients
Small half cabbage
One large carrot
Four small radishes
Couple of cloves of garlic
Tea spoon salt
Half tsp sugar
Tsp lemon juice
Half tsp chill flakes
Let’s try to make sauerkraut
To make a process easy, I used food processor to shred the vegetables
I wash, clean and peel all vegetables and shredded
Using large bowl
Add all shredded vegetables
Mix it and keep it aside for about half hour
then mix and massage with two hands make sure you clean your hands good first.
Vegetables will shrink to half the size, you will see lots of its own juices,
Add garlic shredded and other spices you like
I added, lemon juice, sugar, garlic, and little bit chilli flakes for little zest
Then transfer all in a clean jar, I prefer glass jar and press it down good
With juice it created on its own, it will be easy to press it down .
It will make enough juice by pressing , that you don’t need to add any water.
Now that your sauerkraut is ready, you clean the rim of jar and close, keeping slightly loose for day or two outside on kitchen counter, then keep the jar in refrigerator.
Now that you sauerkraut is ready, can try right away or eat it anytime
