Fermented Sauerkraut

This recipe is from the fermented vegetable and fruit section of Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon.  Just click on the link to purchase your copy.

Makes 1 quart

1 medium cabbage cored and shredded
1 Tbsp Caraway Seeds
1 Tbsp Sea Salt
4 Tbsp Whey
Mix together in a large bowl.
Pound with a wooden meat hammer or pounder for 10 minutes to release juices
Place in a wide mouth quart jar and press down firmly until the juices come to the top of the cabbage.  the top of the cabbage should be at least 1 inch below the top of the jar.  Cover tightly and keep at room temperature for about 3 days before moving to cold storage.  The sauerkraut may be eaten immediately but improves with age.

  1. My German mother used to make the best sauerkraut in large crocks.I have a couple of the crocks, but the recipe isn't in her recipe box. This sounds very simple and good, an it includes caraway seeds, just like my mom's! Thanks!
