How to make Sauerkraut, fermented cabbage.


White cabbage

Salt = 2% weight of the cabbage

Shred the cabbage then weigh it, X 0.02 for the exact amount of salt required. Massage salt with cabbage until it get watery. Transfer into GLASS jar and use a muddler to push the cabbage below the level of the brine. LABEL THE JAR

Top with cling film and a ramekin to ensure it remains covered by brine, attach lid and leave for 2 weeks at least maximum 3 weeks. Make sure to burp the ferment daily or just make a dangerous bomb!!

Once your happy with the taste store in the fridge for about 1 month or longer if you dare
