Since I started receiving more emails asking for the quick and easy sauerkraut recipe I mentioned in the Healthy eating habits article, here is the full recipe:
Makes 1 quart. You will need: 1 medium cabbage, cored and shredded; 1 tablespoon caraway seeds; 1 tablespoon sea salt; 4 tablespoons whey (see page 87) if not available use an additional 1 tablespoon salt.
In a bowl, mix cabbage with caraway seeds, sea salt and whey. Pound with a wooden pounder or a meat hammer for about 10 minutes to release juices. Place in a quart-sized, wide-mouth mason jar and press down firmly with a pounder or meat hammer until juices come to the top of the cabbage. The top of the cabbage should be at least 1 inch (2,5cm) below the top of the jar. Cover tightly and keep at room temperature for about 3 days before transferring to cold storage. The sauerkraut may be eaten immediately, but it improves with age.
The recipe is from the Nourishing Traditions: The Cookbook that Challenges Politically Correct Nutrition and the Diet Dictocrats book by Sally Fallon. A book I highly recommend.
