Fermentation – Easy Sauerkraut and Kombucha recipes

Making Fermented Foods really is so simple.. and fun for the whole family. The biggest hurdle is most probably to get your head around letting foods ferment. We are so used to putting perishables in the fridge or freezer that letting foods ferment on the counter for days and weeks on end can at first seem a little unsettling. However, fermenting foods has been practised for hundreds, maybe thousands of years way before refrigeration was available.

The two ferments that I make with my family are sauerkraut and kombucha. Both my kids love these and despite my youngest being a little (very) fussy with many vegetables, she will always ask for a big spoonful of sauerkraut with her meals! I love that fermented foods are packed with live and active cultures that will add to the diversity of our gut microbiomes, as well as being very cheap, easy and fun to make.

So, if you are looking to move away from expensive store bought kombucha and sauerkraut and make your own, I have put together these step-by-step guides:

The equipment that you need to make fermented foods are usually items that you already have in your kitchen. We also stock complete starter kits here that also make amazing gifts!

Happy fermenting!
