I was up late into the evening making sauerkraut. For this batch I decided to add a few apples. I read in The Joy of Pickling that adding a few apples to your kraut will lessen the tartness of the sauerkraut. Since Mr Chiots isn’t a fan of the tartness of sauerkraut I thought he might like this version. A few of you asked about this as well after listening to Cultivate Simple yesterday.

You can see our microphones are still on the table from recording the night before. It’s nice to have 10 more lbs of cabbage tucked into jars becoming healthy winter food. Sauerkraut is probably my favorite fermented food, I like it cold from the fridge for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. I think it’s salty tang goes well with just about anything!

What’s your favorite fermented food?
