Hi there! Today I'm going to share with you one of the traditional Russian dish. My great-grandmother did it,then my grandmother, mother and now, me do it vey often. It doesn't spend more time and you don't need to have more money to do it, but it's so delicious!!! This is sauerkraut! This recipe is so quickly and easy so even children can do it!
You need: cabbage, carrot, salt, sugar, hot water and a big glass of jar. You also can use enamelled pan .
Cut cabbage and grate carrots.
Firstly, boiled only 1 liter of water add a tablespoun of salt with a slide + a spoun of sugar. After 10 minutes you can add this wather into a jar with cabbage and carrots.( Vegetables should push into a jar very strong)
Next, just leave it in a warm place for fermentation. It's hot now, in my case, it takes about 2,5 days. You notice some changes. Water will be another color, with white shadow, and smell also will be not very beautiful 🤭,but the cabbage will be crispy and salt enough. It will be not so much like in the first day,after fermentation it looks smaller.
After all of that put it in the fridge. You can eat it alone with some sunflower oil and fresh cut onion, or add it in other dish. also you can make another traditional salad, but this is topic for other day.
Hope you like it! Good appetite!😋
I had: 2 kg 350 gr cabbage
A middle and a small carrots
I boiled 2300 ml of hot water.
When I added all vegetables I didn't have any free space, but next day it will be a little bit down.
Notice! Take wooden steak and push it into this jar from time to time,it help to go away some air. It's need for right taste (flover).
All vegetables must be under this water. You can put some press (I put a heavy glass of water, you can use plate ,if you do it in the pan.)
