A Sauerkraut experiment in pictures

Despite the atrocious weather this weekend (and I mean bordering on cyclonic) we ventured into the garden and picked our first cabbage… because what better to do on a rainy day than get some sauerkraut started. Why ferment a very fresh vegetable? It’s great for your gut.

We’re trying out a method I found over on Cut Out The Crap. And so, here is our afternoon of sauerkraut making in pictures:

Into the jar it goes…

And it’s all packed nice and tight

In a few days time we should start to see the fermenting process begin and in a few weeks time I’ll head back here to let you know how it tasted 🙂 In the mean time, I’ll keep the sauerkraut experiment updated with pics of the fermentation process via Instagram.
