We do it the Old Fashioned Way
~ Straight from the Crock
Sauerkraut is a type of fermented cabbage. Many cultures proudly claim it as their own. The true origin, I believe, came from the very beginning. What is known for sure is fermentation happens everywhere on earth, and has been used as a method for thousands of years to preserve food. Sauerkraut fermentation starts when yeasts and bacteria, that are naturally present on the cabbage and your hands, as well as the particles in the air, mix with the sugars in the cabbage.
The end result is a perfectly preserved, nutrition boosted, fermented, transformed, tangy, surprisingly full flavored, sustaining, ALIVE SAUERKRAUT.
