Laurie’s Easy 1-Quart Fizzy Kraut
1 Head Organic Cabbage (remove outer leaves)
1 Tbsp salt
1 Tbsp whey
Core cabbage and chop or dice into small pieces. In a bowl, mix cabbage with 1 Tbsp salt and 1 Tbsp whey. Pound the cabbage until it begins weeping. Transfer the kraut to a quart jar and make sure that all pieces of cabbage are submerged in the liquid. Use a canning lid plus a plastic lid to seal the kraut, and set it on your counter for 3 days. When done, move it to your refrigerator.
What meals does kraut go best with?
We like to eat our kraut with breakfast food.
It goes beautiful with potatoes, eggs, sausage, anything that you would eat for breakfast.
We also use it as a condiment. If you were to slather something on a cracker, this could go on top.
We put ours on top of pizza — Deviled eggs, that’s another thing. Small diced pieces of top of deviled eggs.
Or, kraut goes well with Scrambled eggs and mustard.
Or, all by itself.
We like to put just a small dab on the side of the plate at any meal and it aids anything that you’re eating.
