Wild Garlic Kraut

Ingredients: Wild Garlic, Sea Salt.

 

Fermentation is a great way to preserve and extend the season of foods. Lacto-Fermentation is the ancient technique of fermentation used to make sauerkraut and is known to enhance nutrients like vitamin C as well as making many of the nutrients more bio-available, meaning they are easier to digest and absorb into the body. This is because the vegetables have been "pre-digested" by healthy gut bacteria known as lactobacilli, which give it the slightly acidic taste.

 

Wild Garlic Kraut is amazing as a condiment, ingredient for sauces and soups, sandwiches, sushi, burgers, hot dogs, pasta and to accompany cheese. It goes well with vegetables, fish and meat.
