Benefit – Make natural nutrition-packed sauerkraut and pickled vegetables with this stoneware crock pot from Germany. Through the years, sauerkraut has been recognized as one of the healthiest foods, and was even used on sailing ships to protect sailors from scurvy. Natural lactic acid fermentation is one of the oldest and healthiest means of food preservation. It allows natural, beneficial bacteria to perform a fermentation process in which vegetables develop a pleasantly sour taste and remain rich in vitamins and minerals. Lactic acid fermentation is the only method of preservation that retains all the natural plant ingredients while improving the quality, taste and aroma. Includes beechwood stomper. This stomper or smasher is in the traditional style. The Cabbage Smasher extracts the natural juices from cabbage. You can use a mallet or your hand, but the smasher is easier and safer. For sauerkraut place about 1.5″ – 2.0″ of shredded cabbage into fermenting crock, sprinkle with some sea salt and then start pounding on it with your smasher. Not too hard, just enough to smash the leaves. This will create natural juices that form the brine to ferment your shredded vegetables. Place another layer of cabbage on top of the other and repeat the process.
