Make Your Own Sauerkraut

There’s nothing quite like brats or corned beef with some fresh homemade sauerkraut!  Sauerkraut has been made at home for centuries as a way to preserve and enjoy the cabbage harvest.  Cabbage is one of the healthiest vegetables known to man, and sauerkraut makes it even healthier by adding probiotics!  It’s unfortunate that not as many people are making sauerkraut at home these days, since it’s easy to make and more delicious than the store-bought stuff!

sauerkraut-ingredients
All the ingredients you’ll need: cabbage, salt, jar, and knife!
cabbage-chopped-1
Chop the cabbage according to your preference.
cabbage-salt-2
Any salt will work, but we like pink Himalayan because of its extra trace mineral content.
cabbage-wilted-3
After the salt is added and the cabbage is massaged, the cabbage will shrink down considerably.
After the cabbage is thoroughly wilted and massaged, put the cabbage and extracted water in a jar and wait patiently!
