Garlic Black Pepper Sauerkraut
2023 Good Food Awards Winner!!!
Organic garlic, organic carrots, flat leaf cabbage, organic black pepper, sea salt.
This is real sauerkraut, made with cabbage, sea salt, grated carrot, a ridiculous amount of cracked black pepper, and all the garlic. It is very good, and very peppery but not overpowering. It is also gluten free and vegan. This is not that mushy vinegary mess in the bag at the supermarket. This is a supernatural sour, like your ancestors made.
I ferment 14 days, bag it, and refrigerate. There is plenty of crunch to the cabbage, and the flavor will develop and improve over time.
A word or two about naturally fermented sauerkraut: it is low in calories, high in fiber, with no fat. This is a naturally lacto-fermented food that is full of beneficial probiotics that are good for your gut. I'm told that 10 trillion lactobacillus bacteria reside in 4-6 ounces of fermented sauerkraut. That means that 2 pounds of this stuff could have 80 TRILLION colony-forming beneficial bacteria. That is like ALL the bottles of probiotics in the pharmacy. Sauerkraut also contains Vitamin K, which facilitates the absorption of calcium and bone mineralization, as well as Vitamin C, to repair tissues and ward off the scurvy.
This recipe is completely Whole30 and AIP compliant!
Please keep refrigerated.
