Welcome to Ditch the Wheat! Before you view the recipe I need to make sure you are aware of this. I hear it all the time... You're asking me to give up bread... Even my type 2 diabetic neighbour refuses to give up bread... There's so many reasons to ditch the bread: - gluten - GMO wheat - simple carbs (that cause weight gain) BUT it's so comforting to bite into a soft piece of bread smeared with butter. What if I told you there's bread you can eat that is Paleo and Keto friendly. --> CLICK HERE <--

No Knead Method Raw Sauerkraut

I enjoy making raw sauerkraut and I’ve gotten to the point where I make more than one batch at a time.  This creates a problem: my hands are too sore kneading that much cabbage to create the juice for the raw sauerkraut.  Kneading salt into the shredded cabbage is tedious and although it only takes about 10 minutes per batch, I would rather skip it.  Here’s a method that is well known in the fermenting world that I tried that involves taking your cabbage, putting the salt on it, leaving it in the bowl with a weight and allowing it to sit for hours.

PSssTTTT ~ I also want you to know about the KETO Bread Cookbook. You can eat bread that is Paleo and Keto friendly. --> CLICK HERE <--

You go about your day and come back and your cabbage will be soggy and ready to be put into jars.

I use this recipe from Real Food Fermentation by Alex Lewin’s book (find book here) to create my raw sauerkraut.  You can find the raw sauerkraut recipe here.

For the raw sauerkraut recipe, skip the kneading part, insert the no knead method, and then continue with the recipe.

Now I make 2 batches at once and it doesn’t leave my hands sore.  Since I make two batches I use 3 bowls, pile them on top of each other and use something heavy, in this case a “senior moments” jar.

Resources

I found this book very helpful for learning how to ferment various foods.  Real Food Fermentation (found here on Amazon) focuses on a beginners guide to fermenting vegetables, fruits, drinks and meat.  If you want to learn more about how to ferment foods you should look into Nourished Kitchen’s course, Get Cultured.  Click here for more information.

Enjoy,
