Cabbage is abundant and inexpensive in the summer, and making sauerkraut with this seasonal veggie is easier than you might think. Plus, it offers nutritional benefits long into the fall and winter (it can keep for months in your refrigerator).
Fermented foods like sauerkraut provide helpful bacteria and digestive enzymes that support a healthy microbiome. (For more on fermentation, see “Discover Fermented Foods“.) Enjoy it on its own or add a burst of flavor to eggs, grilled meats, or your favorite wraps.
