Further Experiment with Fermentation: Sauerkraut

We started our sauerkraut project today!

For anyone interested in making these in your own kitchen, all you need are vegetables (we used cabbage, onion & carrots), mason jars, and a tool to push down the veggies.

Just cut the veggies in bite-size pieces, salt on the heavy side (the fermentation process needs salt), mix and start putting into the jar, pausing every once in a while to push down on the veggies to create brine. And that's about it! Just make sure that by the end of your process, all the veggies will be covered in brine juice (otherwise, mold will start to develop).

We'll keep you posted on how ours turn out!
