    Sauerkraut

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    I want to make some of this and wondered if a caffetiere (French Press) would be a suitable thing to make it in? I thought the filter would keep the cabbage submerged and the lid would keep flies out - would there be a downside I haven't thought of?

    If it is metal you may get a reaction from the fermentation process.

    Most of the recipes I have read have the cabbage in glass, weighted down with a plate with a weight on it--brick in a zip lock bag and the like, letting the brine rise over the plate. Cover with a thin kitchen towel or cheese cloth to keep the flies out.

    Is the sauerkraut from the store worth it or does it just have alot of junk in it? I was going to buy some and saw that the only ingredients were sauerkraut and salt, but after reading some sites they said that store-bought sauerkraut is just cabbage soaked in salty vinegar. Anyone eat the stuff from the store?

    I got some expensive kraut from whole foods, its raw and organic and claims to have all the nautarl fermented beasties in there. I think its garden of eden brand. Its very good.

    Mmm, I love sauerkraut. Good to know there are some good kinds at the health food store. I will have to check it out.

    Thanks for the suggestion. However, I don't go to whole foods due to the outrageous prices (almond butter is twice the price and half as much there as compared to Trader Joe's). The sauerkraut I saw was in Acme. Does anyone get some from TJ's or Wegman's?

    Edit: Nvm, just searched Wegman's website and they have a number of sauerkraut brands, so I'll check it out when I get back from Italy.

    I have read that Bubbies is supposed to be good as well.

    Bubbie's brand is just cabbage, vinegar and water. They also have pickles that are fermented w/o vinegar. Look for no vinegar, no preservatives, not pasteurized.
