Danish-Inspired Red Kraut

Danish-Inspired Red Kraut

Making your own kraut is simple, satisfying, and good for you

This kraut is great with salty meats like pork, on a cheese sandwich, over baked or creamy mashed potatoes (try it with crumbled feta), or in a salad.

A follower is important because sometimes the vegetables float to the top when you want them to stay under the brine. Find a good system to hold them down, or shove the vegetables in so tightly that a simple grape leaf or folded cabbage leaf becomes a kind of barrier to hold them down. For a weight, another vegetable chunk cut to size is pretty lovely – carrots are perfect for this.—Sharon Flynn, author of Ferment for Good

Preparation time: 15–25 minutes

Fermentation time: 5+ days

Equipment: 2-liter (68-fluid-ounce) jar, pounder, follower (see below), weight

Notes

A follower is a liner — simply something placed over the top of the vegetables before the weight to help keep the vegetables down. The follower should be non-reactive and clean (a cabbage leaf, for example, or a plate even) and should act to stop little bits of the vegetables floating around and onto the weight.

Ingredients

  • 2 red cabbages, shredded
  • About 1 3/4 ounces fine ground salt
  • 1/2 Ounce fennel seeds
