I’m a huge fan of fermenting foods, for probiotics benefits and more, but I’m an even bigger fan of healthy being simple and easy. This method of making sauerkraut utilizes time in place of work, making health and food preservation that much easier.
So, I totally and completely blew my 31 Days of Probiotics and Fermenting. It wasn’t for lack of ideas. I had more than 31 ideas of both information and recipes.
I was unrealistically enthusiastic. I forgot that I have kids, and that time management is still an area where I have room for much improvement. I still want to write on both topics though, so I’ll continue to update that page as an index.
Right now I have a recipe for super easy sauerkraut. If you have a food processor, you could even call it 5 min sauerkraut, because that’s about how much active time is involved. I don’t have a food processor, therefore cutting all those strands by hand takes a little more time (aren’t they lovely and thin strands?).
It’s even easier if you take advantage of child labour. You may end up with a fair amount of cabbage on the floor though.
Next week is based on sauerkraut – a Slovak recipe for a creamy sauerkraut stew (it’s really tasty, honest) and a round up of what to do with sauerkraut once it’s made. Make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss out!
The recipe for sauerkraut is over at Whole New Mom – could preserving food and being healthy be any easier?
