Gingery Apple Cabbage Sauerkraut
Gingery Apple Cabbage Sauerkraut is one of my favorite fermented foods to make and eat! This is such a simple recipe, but you do have to tend to the sauerkraut as it ferments. During the process, open the jars once a day to release air. When you open the jars, you should feel some pressure release and see air bubbles. Always make sure that the vegetables are completely covered by the liquid when fermenting.
When making this sauerkraut, make sure you sterilize any equipment you will be using for fermentation, especially the jars. Fermentation may not take place unless you work with sterilized equipment. This is easy to do – start by pouring boiling water over clean jars and lids and leaving to dry completely. Wait for the jars to come back to room temperature before adding ingredients.
