Getting started with Sauerkraut

Following the experts

Below is a post that I added to Instagram in April 2020 during the first global lockdown!!   Given the situation, I was doing my best to put out any information I had that would help people support their immune system with everyday foods.  I was new to homemade probiotic food then and so I included a variety of links to the experts. You will find them mentioned in the post below.  I won’t say I’m an expert now, by any means, but I have gained some confidence along the way.  When we try to master a new skill that we haven’t practiced before, the self doubt seems to rise rapidly to the surface.  Fear not!!  Worst case scenario you lose a few fresh ingredients in the process, but even that is unlikely.  More likely you find yourself expanding your knowledge and trying more home made healthy options.

A previous post Probiotic Lemonade is perhaps one of my favourite ways to build my army of friendly microbes.   A more detailed post on the benefits of Sauerkraut as a homemade food based probiotic will follow shortly and in that post I will add a variety of optional flavours and what equipment you may need to get started.
