Our Fav Sauerkraut Recipe
1 Big Head Purple Cabbage (or 3 small ones!)
2 - 3 Medium Carrots
2 Red Beets
2 TBL Celtic Sea Salt
Chop all ingredients to your liking (we prefer a rough chop). Afterwards spend approximately 15 minutes of squishing all the above ingredients into a jar with the briny/salty liquid and fill to at least 1 - 2 inches above the kraut. Let the jar sit in a dark area of your kitchen or a room with decent air flow for at least three days, and up to two weeks.
Sauerkraut update! 🥬
I have to admit, it is so yummy! I'm pretty impressed with how easy it was to make delish kraut, and it goes so great as a summer bbq side! I understand it isn't a taste that everyone loves, so here is a list of its many MANY benefits that might help convince you to add it to your dinner plate.
🌟Packed with probiotics for gut health
🌟High in fiber for gut and heart health helping reduced heart disease
🌟Sulfer-containing Glucosinolates!! Powerhouses for all kinds of goodness. Studies link these to protective anti-cancer activity especially in the lungs and alimentary tract
🌟Glucosinolates found in brassicas (cabbage, broccoli, brussel sprouts, etc) encourage the liver during phase 1 metabolism helping rid the body of toxins, STRESS, inflammation....the list is long!
🌟Cruciferous veggies help the body process and excrete excess estrogen (estrogen dominance anyone??) and help balance hormones throughout the menstrual cycle.
