Let’s Make Sauerkraut!

Sauerkraut or choucroute, has become increasingly popular in recent times.  It’s seen as a way to improve gut health, easing digestive symptoms and supporting your immune system, by adding probiotics and enzymes to your diet.  I just love toasted sourdough with a little Dijon mustard and melted cheese, topped with sauerkraut for breakfast each day.

The other great benefit of making sauerkraut, and one that I think sometimes gets ignored in these times, is that it is a fabulous way of preserving cabbage when it’s in season.  I love to use this sauerkraut to make delicious, warming comfort food during the colder months of the year.

For those who would like to know how easy it is to make sauerkraut, I will be running a session in the Community Kitchen at Segue – Stratford’s Neighborhood House & Arts Café, in nearby Stratford this month.  All details are below for anyone who might be interested in attending.
