Gut Loving Sauerkraut Recipe

Watch What I Eat In A Day

Here is what I eat in a day for anti aging, glowing skin and loads of energy. I share all the foods I eat in a day and explain how they work together to keep me feeling young, healthy and vital.

Ingredients:

  • 2kg pale green or white cabbage cored
  • 3 tbsp Himalayan rock salt
  • 1 tsp caraway seeds
  • 1 tsp peppercorns

Method:

  1. Wash your hands and make sure your mixing bowl is clean (I use 2 stainless steel bowls as it is much easier on your hands for mixing purposes)
  2. Shred the cabbage thinly – a food processor makes light work of this. Layer the cabbage and the salt in the tub or bowl. Massage the salt into the cabbage for 5 mins, wait 5 mins, then repeat. (divide into 2 bowls for easier massaging)  The salt actually cooks the cabbage and you will be left with a much smaller quantity than when you started. Mix in the caraway seeds and the peppercorns.
  3. Empty the contents into a clean jar and press down the cabbage so that it completely covered with liquid.  Add a lid  and leave in a dark place at a cool room temperature (about 18-20C) for at least 7 days. It will be ready to eat after 5 days, but for maximum flavour leave the cabbage to ferment for anywhere between 2-6 weeks (or until the bubbling subsides).
  4. Check the cabbage every day or so, releasing any gases that have built up as it ferments. You should see bubbles appearing within the cabbage, and possibly some foam on the top of the brine.
  5.  When its ready, place in the fridge for up to 6 months

  1. Hi sweetie! LOVE your YouTube channel… you are such a beautiful woman inside and out… and al your tips, suggestions, recipes, advice -everything! is so very welcomed. I have a question on the saurkraut recicpe… Is there ANY water or other liquid to put on the cabbage? “Empty the contents into a clean jar and press down the cabbage so that it completely covered with liquid.” That threw me off… 😉 Does the salt create the liquid then? Also, how much do you usually make at a time, to always have a supply of saurkraut? Do the two cabbages you call for in the recipe make one jar? Thank you!!

  2. For those who are wondering about the liquid for the jar. You can pour the liquid that comes from the cabbage after letting it site for 5-10 minutes in the bowl. Other then that, it creates its own while fermenting ????.
