Don’t be put off at the thought of making your own sauerkraut. It’s pretty easy to do, is way healthier and tastier than the commercial variety and if you use red cabbage, looks fantastic too! It will last for months and months in the fridge, however you probably won’t get to confirm this small fact because you will want to finish it long before the sell-by date. Once in the fridge, the flavour of home-made sauerkraut continues to deepen and develop.
If you are not used to fermented foods, it’s best to start off with eating a small amount and build up.
