  1. Initial and Cabbage Preparations 1. Take the equipment out or clean it. This will include a chopping board, knife, large mixing bowl, mixing wooden spatula, 1ltr preserving jar, and a teaspoon.

  3. Putting The Sauerkraut Together 1. Transfer the shredded cabbage to a larger mixing bowl, add the salt and mix with clean hands to thoroughly combine. I personally like to massage the cabbage with salt so it's easier to handle it as it softens but it is somehow tastier too. Massaging the cabbage meaning to slightly rubbing it to get that crushed effect. Alternatively, use a cabbage crusher to do this.

  4. 2. When the cabbage is ready, you will have a reduced by half amount of cabbage in the bowl. You will also end up with about 200ml (1 cup) brine in the bottom of the bowl.

  5. 3. Add the chopped, shredded, or crushed pieces of carrot, sliced ginger and turmeric roots, and all the desired spices. Mix thoroughly with the mixing wooden spatula.

  6. Jarring the sauerkraut 1. Jar the unpasteurized sauerkraut by adding this into the jar and pressing it down tightly to remove any air bubbles. Also, make sure to scrape the inside of the jar with the spatula or a spoon so every shred of cabbage is submerged into the brine.
