I first watched Michael Pollan making sauerkraut on the video at the bottom. I have been meaning to make it ever since. I even bought a cabbage a couple times and never did anything with it! I finally got around to using this super simple recipe and now I wonder why I haven't been doing this forever!
I went really basic and used only cabbage, salt, a mason jar, and 5 days. The result is delicious and I'm thrilled to be adding more probiotics to my family's diet without the usual price tag, pasteurization, or additives.
A probiotic rich diet can protect from colon cancer, relieve inflammatory bowel disease and lactose intolerance, improve oral health, increase bioavailability of vitamins, nutrients and minerals in food, and perhaps most significantly, increase the efficiency of the immune system, which is primarily located in your gut.
