Fall Food Preservation: Fermented Cabbage for Health and Vitality

September 27, 2015 2:00 PM

Fermented cabbage, better known as sauerkraut, is a easy, healthy and efficient way to store those heads of cabbage abundant this time of year. Sauerkraut is made by combining cabbage, salt and other herbs or vegetables and letting them mingle with friendly lactic acid bacteria, including Leuconostoc, Lactobacillus, and Pediococcus. These bacteria help to create that yummy, tangy, acidic sauerkraut taste, and are a great way to introduce beneficial microbes to your body.
