DIY RECIPES FOR LIFE IN EGYPT

"Everyone has a physician inside him or her, we just have to help it in its work; The natural healing force within each one of us is the greatest force in getting well. Our food should be our medicine. Our medicine should be our food."  - Hippocrates

Nourishing Traditions Sauerkraut

Ingredients: 1 medium Cabbage (Shredded), 1 Tablespoon Caraway Seeds, 1 Tablespoon Sea Salt, 4 Tablespoons whey or an additional Tablespoon Sea Salt.

In a bowl, mix cabbage with caraway seeds, salt and whey (if using...I just use the 2 Tbl Sea Salt). Pound with a wooden pounder or a meat hammer for about 10 minutes to release the juices.

Place in a quart sized, wide mouth mason jar and press down firmly with a meat hammer or pounder until the juices come to the top of the cabbage. The top of the cabbage should be at least 1 inch below the top of the jar. Cover tightly and keep at room temperature for about 3 days before transferring to cold storage. The Sauerkraut may be eaten immediately, but it improves with age.
