RECIPE: LACTO-FERMENTED KOHLRABI KRAUT

Recipe: Lacto-Fermented Kohlrabi Kraut

star

Rated 3.8 stars by 16 users

Kohlrabi is a little obscure, but it is delicious. The flavor is crunchy, fresh, and sort of like a cross between a cabbage and an apple. For that reason alone it makes a great alternative to cabbage kraut. The crunchy, sweet vegetable is best prepared grated, much as you would a cucumber for a pickle relish.

Grey Celtic Sea Salt






INGREDIENTS:

  • 4 medium kohlrabi, washed and grated on a box grater
  • 1 medium onion, sliced thinly or grated
  • 2 Tbsp. sea salt
  • Water as needed

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Combine the grated kohlrabi, onion, and salt in a medium bowl. Let rest a few minutes to allow the juices to develop.
  2. Transfer mixture to a glass quart-size jar and pack down so that vegetables are completely covered.Add water, if needed, to create at least 2 inches of brine over the vegetables, but leave a 1-inch headspace in the jar.
  3. If necessary, weigh the vegetables down under the brine.
  4. Cover each jar with a tight lid, airlock lid, or coffee filter secured with a rubber band.
  5. Culture at room temperature (60-70°F is preferred) until desired flavor and texture are achieved. If using a tight lid, burp daily to release excess pressure.
  6. Once the vegetables are finished, put a tight lid on the jar and move to cold storage. The flavor will continue to develop.
