Well, you know that a few weeks ago, I started my first ever lacto fermented sauerkraut in my new harsch crock.
I’m going to give you all the nitty-gritty, not so pretty details as well as the good points too. I know sometimes blogs will only say the positive.
Not here, baby. We get the good with the bad. The ugly with the pretty. Haha. Straight up. 😉
First… here are some things NOT to do.
- When directions tell you to not open for 3-4 weeks… well, you ought to follow instructions. *sigh* I couldn’t help but open and peek. Not a good idea because it will allow air to enter and there might be some moldy spots on the inside walls of crock.
- When they tell you to put the crock in a dark spot. Yeah, you probably ought to do that too.
- When you do end up doing all these things that they say don’t do… you still get kraut… it’s just a little more laborious
- I don’t care for caraway… Next time, I won’t be using that in my kraut.
All those negatives… but let’s start talking about the positives!
Sauerkraut is very good for you! It will help your digestive system function well!
Sauerkraut is pretty tasty… even when it isn’t made exactly right. LOL
The crock is AWESOME! I love it. Even when I didn’t do exactly what it said to do *blush* it did it’s thing.
Sauerkraut is cheap!
I bought organic cabbage and it’s like $3.00 a head at the most. You can’t go wrong there…
Did I say how good it is for you?
Here’s some benefits of sauerkraut:
