Make your own sauerkraut, it is easy and simple. Use homemade sauerkraut for the salads and soups.
(see other recipes).
Shred the cabbage
Add shredded carrots and red bell pepper (optional).
Season with salt. Mix it well squeezing with clean hands. Add cored and cut in thin slices apple.
Put cabbage with vegetables in a tall jar, firmly press it all around, to release juices.
Cover with a cheese cloth and leave it on a counter for 2-3 days.
After 2-3 days take a long knife and pock the cabbage through to the bottom in few places letting the bitter gasses out.
Cover the jar with the lid and store in the refrigerator.
Use it for salads or soups.
Take some sauerkraut from the jar, squeezing the juices out.
Add some green onion, raisins, sugar and olive oil to taste.
