What To Eat with Sauerkraut

How To Enjoy Sauerkraut

Sauerkraut is a side dish or condiment. It is made by putting cabbage through a fermentation process. The end result is a slightly sour, very briney dish used as a topping for so many recipes!

Sauerkraut was originally invented over 2,000 years ago in China. Slaves learned to soak the cabbage in rice wine to preserve it. .

You may notice sauerkraut is hardly ever associated with China. In the 16th century, German people began the process of dry curing cabbage with salt, to extract the liquid from it and instead turned the sugars in the vegetable to lactic acid, which naturally preserved it


Most recipes for sauerkraut call for  two ingredients: Raw Cabbage and Salt - either green cabbage or red cabbage. The ingredients have to rest for a long time (a few weeks) in order to reach their best results. Soon you’ll be able to put your homemade treat on everything!
