Try Untraditional Apple-Ginger-Orange Sauerkraut for a Fruity, Probiotic Variation



Probiotics found in sauerkraut provide many health benefits to your overall gut microbiome. Your microbiome is known as your digestive tract which is home to trillions of bacteria and has an enormous impact on your overall health. Research shows that gut bacteria can affect: brain function, skin health, and immune system strength. Also known as “your second brain” it’s safe to say we should be paying more attention to this very important part of ourselves!

Today I am sharing with you a twist on the traditional sauerkraut recipe. Instead of going savory, this procedure is more on the fruity, tart side. Introducing ginger, apple, and orange to the mix will still provide all the beneficial probiotics while getting creative with your fermentations.

Fermentation Procedure

Step 1: Shred one head of purple cabbage and add one table spoon of sea salt.


Step 2: Shred about two inches of ginger. Add more to your liking! I personally love ginger and have a really high tolerance for it so I added double the amount.
