I was inspired to make my own sauerkraut after our teacher said we should make some as our “homework.” I had actually been wanting to make my own sauerkraut for over a year, but I was worried that I would make myself sick. Leaving vegetables on the counter top for a few weeks just seemed like a bad idea to me 😉 Plus, I didn’t know what sauerkraut was supposed to taste like. How would I know if it was safe or not?
The universe responded to my curiosity in the form of a poster offering a Fermentation Workshop for the very next Monday. I signed up and now feel that I can be a confident fermenter 🙂
In the workshop, we made three types of Lacto-Fermented Vegetables: Kimchi, Garlic Dill Green Beans and Sauerkraut. (See photo above)
They were simple to make, but most importantly delicious.
