Homemade Sauerkraut Recipe

My friend Emily shared this recipe with me.  She is a nutritionist, and wrote the curriculum that I teach at CityLink Center.  She was sharing how eating a spoonful of homemade sauerkraut is better for you than taking a probiotic.   Fermented foods also improve digestion and gut health.  Give this recipe a try and see how amazing you feel!


Ingredients

  • 1 large head of cabbage (or about 4 cups shredded cabbage)
  • 1 Tablespoon Sea salt
  • Mason Jar

Instructions

  • Cut cabbage into shreds and place into a large bowl
  • Add sea salt
  • Massage together with your hands until the cabbage starts to become wet
  • Place in mason jar, pour water into jar until cabbage is covered.  Leave room for cabbage to expand.
  • Cover with lid and sit on your counter for 4-7 days.  The longer it sits out, the more sour it will get.
  • Refrigerate, can keep for 9 months.
