Use red cabbage to make sauerkraut with more color and healthy phytonutrients than kraut made with green cabbage. Fermentation crocks can be expensive and hard to find, but slow-cooker crocks are easy to find at yard sales and thrift stores. Maybe you have one you are not using already! I use a 1-quart crock, but you can scale this recipe up or down. You don’t need to fill the crock to the brim for success.
Compared to many fermentation recipes, Red Cabbage Kraut is quick. I start nibbling on it after the first 24 hours. Let it ferment for two weeks or more for the most complex flavor.
Red Cabbage Sauerkraut costs just 38 cents a serving using local organic cabbage.
