Simple Sauerkraut

Homemade Simple Sauerkraut Recipe

We believe in simple whole foods that nourish our bodies and taste delicious. Adding rose hips and other superfoods boosts the vitamin C in this recipe. You can use a food processor to shred the vegetables faster.

1 medium organic cabbage, shredded
2 organic carrots, shredded
1 small piece of organic daikon radish, shredded
2 inch fresh organic turmeric, shredded
1 organic onion, shredded
1 handful of organic thyme
1/4 cup whole organic rose hips, pulverized into a fine powder in a coffee grinder
2 tablespoons Celtic sea salt


Mix all the vegetables with sea salt and massage well, let sit for 20 min and you will see a liquid separating.*

Pack all in a glass jar. Start with thyme at the bottom, add the vegetables and rose hip powder and add the liquid on top. Use pickling weights to press down and remove as much air as possible. Add pickling lids and set aside in a warm place, checking every day-when it's sour enough for you, move it in the refrigerator to stop the lactofermentation.

Enjoy it as a side dish or check our website to see a delicious English Walnut Veggie Patée made with it.
